Penalized for Pregnancy

By Michael Messina

Should a woman be forced to choose between a paycheck and a pregnancy? Peggy Young is saying no. Young, an employee for UPS, was forced to go on unpaid leave after her doctor told her she couldn’t do any heaving lifting while pregnant. UPS didn’t have any light-duty work for her and so she was out of luck, and out of a paycheck.

Watch CBS’s interview and story on Young and her case that is going to the Supreme Court.
