A Nigerian man, Victor Idebi, has expressed displeasure over the fact that some employers are always unhappy when their employees put to bed.
Victor said the sadness is occasioned by the reality that the employers would hire another employee to cover up for the new mum and still continue paying the latter.
According to him, a career is encompassing and it's not about work alone. He said raising a child is part of one's career and organisations should be aware of this.
In his words:
"I've heard a Director grumble when about few of his staff were pregnant. The question is why hire young people when you know the occasion will rise when they need to be on break?
"Career is encompassing; it's not about work alone. Raising a child is part of one's career. Organisations need to digest this.
"I find it exciting paying visits when my colleagues put to bed with the believe that it will get to my turn one day."
In other news, a Nigerian lady was sacked on her first day of work after asking her manager if 'she stands a chance with him and can sit on his face'.
Personal development coach Dipo Awojide made the disclosure on social media.
In his words:
"How can you go and ask your male manager “you look so cute, do I stand a chance with you? Can I sit on your face” on the first day at your new job? Some of you are very bold but enjoy unnecessary wahala. Don’t you like your job? Now HR has been involved."
