I work in a male-dominated field, but recently our boss hired a woman to work with us.
In the Heating and A/C repair and replacement business, only about 1% of employees are females.
The male-dominated field can be a difficult place for a woman. I’ve been toiling for the same Heating and A/C business for the past 10 years, however last year our boss hired a woman to work on commercial Heating and A/C repairs. About more than seven months after she was hired, she got pregnant. Now the time is getting ready for her to have the baby and our co-workers and I found out that she qualifies for maternity leave. I’ve been toiling for the Heating and A/C business for 10 years and I have had numerous children. I have not qualified for paternity leave at all during that time. I am genuinely aggravated.. A new employee has only been here for more than seven months and she already qualifies for numerous weeks of paid leave. I want paternity leave if our coworkers are going to get maternity leave. I said something to the human resources department of the commercial Heating and A/C contracting business. The woman asked myself and others if I wanted to file a complaint, but I suppose that all the people in the business will see the complaint. If I start causing problems, I am really going to end up with the worst repairs and replacement jobs that nobody else wants. I have to be totally honest. I entirely didn’t recognize this would end up being the problem when the boss hired Sheila. It’s ironic that I’m complaining about being treated fairly; For the first numerous months Sheila was emschemed , nobody treated her fairly.
