Mayoral Candidate Bob Fioretti Statement on Pregnancy Discrimination Lawsuit Against the Board of Education

Chicago, IL –(ENEWSPF)—December 23, 2014. The following is a statement from mayoral candidate Bob Fioretti: 

In a matter of days we have seen two overwhelming examples of why our school board should be elected.

A millionaire venture capitalist sits on our school board, appointed by our millionaire mayor, and makes decisions that enrich the companies in which she invests. Meanwhile, women who make a working salary to teach our children are being forced to choose between a career and motherhood.

This is an embarrassment and is one more example of why a mayoral appointed school board has failed this city. We should have absolutely no tolerance for sexist practices in any workplace or our school system. These teachers deserve justice now.
