I found out I was pregnant the day before I started a new position with my company. The job is on a construction site in the middle of the empty desert that stretches between Southern California and Arizona, and the nearest hospital is 45 minutes away. I took the job specifically for the money, because it was a huge raise, and greatly needed. And of course, the need significantly increased when I found out my husband and I were expecting our first child. However, next Friday will be my last day at this job (not by my choice). My supervisor is making me go back to my old office. His reasoning is that it is closer to a hospital and that is very important if anything were to happen to me. I completely agree. That is not where the problem is. The problem is, they are cutting my income a great deal. With the job I have now comes a few perks, including a company vehicle and more importantly, a company gas card, which helps me save huge with the way gas prices are now. My old office is about 1.5 hours from my house now. As a side note, I use to live 10 mins from my old job, but the new one required that I move to the area so another perk of this job was that they pay a daily subsistence for that, on top of my hourly wages. The job I'm going back to has the hourly wages cut, I loose my company vehicle along with the gas card, and I no longer get the daily subsistence. Needless to say, things are going to be extremely tight with our finances now. I feel like something is wrong with this situation. As I said, I completely understand and agree with wanting to be closer to a hospital in the case of an emergency. But plain and simple, I'm losing A TON of money by making this move back. I was once told that an employer is not allowed cut wages like that when the reasoning has something to do with pregnancy. Is that correct? If they aren't doing anything wrong, then it is what it is and DH and I will figure out a way to make it work. I just don't want to be getting screwed over. Also, I know that I have been lucky in getting a job like this with all of the perks. Not everyone is so lucky and I am very grateful for that. I don't want to come across like a spoiled brat complaining that they're taking things away from me. I just want to be able to stand up and take care of the situation if I'm being wronged.
