Massachusetts Lawmakers Advance Bill To Protect Pregnant Workers

May 12, 2017

     Massachusetts is poised to require greater on-the-job protections for pregnant workers.

        The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act passed unanimously in the Massachusetts House earlier this week. 

         The bill has been a priority for a coalition of women’s rights groups since it was introduced in 2015.     

        WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Linda Matys O’Connell, acting executive director of the South Hadley-based organization MotherWoman.
