Pasaia, Spain: Lesbian fired for wanting to be a mother

Spain

The LAB union has denounced on Thursday the discriminatory situation that, in their opinion, a lesbian woman in Pasaia suffered from. According to a statement in a media release, a local bar has fired a woman “for wanting to be a mother.” The union explains that “since the company knew two of its workers were a couple, the relationship has been going wrong.” Thus, according to the union, “a few weeks ago, knowing that one of them was undergoing a fertility treatment, they have fired the other worker.”
