A Better Balance is proud to follow the lead of BMMA and their incredible partners in dismantling systemic racism and fighting for equitable policies and systems of care that allow all Black mothers to thrive.
Over the past five years, A Better Balance has been working closely on this legislation. We are thrilled that the Kentucky legislature has taken this important step forward in ensuring that no one has to choose between her job and a healthy pregnancy.
This International Women’s Day please take a moment to learn more about how inclusive workplace policies that recognize the demands of caregiving can help our society maintain a better balance and strengthen communities across the country.
We will be monitoring this case closely in the months ahead, as we work to ensure that no woman is forced to choose between her economic security and a healthy pregnancy.
This is a major victory for pregnant workers at Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer! No longer should pregnant workers like our clients, Kaitlyn and Leigha, be punished for seeking urgent pregnancy-related medical care.
Since our founding, A Better Balance has fought day in and day out for pregnant workers. 2018 was no different.
