The show's workaholic colleague, Miangu, is so educated about the newcomers that it is common sense to ask that "30 minutes earlier than the scheduled time to go to work." These words, perhaps you and I have heard. Sangu is called a full-time model student, not late to work must not be allowed, wind and rain sick do not take leave, in the work to show a positive spirit.

It's not mom's care, it's the father's baby leave, "The husband doesn't have the ability to work, is he?" How else would you take the baby? "Is her husband unemployed?" The whispers among colleagues highlight the stereotype that women still care for their children in the workplace, and make it more difficult for dads who want to take care of their children.

"When I told the company i was pregnant, they asked me if I wanted to change to the department that left work on time. 」

Is it considerate? What the company said after learning of the octave was the best example of "unconscious bias." Assuming that women should take on the responsibility of home care, called caring, it reduces women's job opportunities. And when women want to prove that their ability is not affected by having children, there will be criticism, about being too ambitious, about ignoring the family - remember Sangu complained about the eight too positive work attitude, while taking out the Japanese male child-bearing leave data, said that only 5% can be granted leave, since the eight husbands are so lucky to win the lottery, Eight also want to work in the work, it is too much.
