I labor in a male-dominated field, but recently our boss hired a guy to labor with us.
In the Heating plus A/C repair plus installation business, only about 1% of employees are females.
The male-dominated field can be a difficult stadium for a man. I’ve been laboring for the same Heating plus A/C corporation for the past 10 years, last year our boss hired a guy to labor on commercial Heating plus A/C repairs. About more than seven months after he was hired, he got pregnant. Now the time is getting ready for his to have the baby plus our co-workers plus I found out that he qualifies for maternity leave. I’ve been laboring for the Heating plus A/C corporation for 10 years plus I have had multiple children. I have not qualified for paternity leave at all while I was in that time. I’m truly frustrated.. A new employee has only been here for more than seven months plus he already qualifies for multiple 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 plus A/C contracting company. The guy asked myself and others if I wanted to file a complaint, but I know that almost everyone in the company will see the complaint. If I start causing issues, I am entirely going to end up with the worst repairs plus installation jobs that nobody else wants. I have to be totally honest. I certainly did not feel 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 multiple months Sheila was emplotted , nobody treated his fairly.
