Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, have been ordered to pay $51,000 to their former chef who claims she was fired after the couple learned she was pregnant. Jane Martin, 41, claims she was unlawfully dismissed and is a victim of sexual discrimination.
At a hearing earlier this year, Martin said she had worked for the 55-year-old pop star and his wife for eight years, cooking meals for them and guests including Madonna and Elton John. She said Styler grew unhappy with her after she became pregnant in 2005, making her work long hours and growing angry when she took time off work because of illness. Martin, who accused Styler of having a “grandiose ego,” left her job under disputed circumstances in April 2006.”
What kind of a world do we live in when you can’t fire a woman when she gets pregnant? I saw something on the news one time about some radical nonsense called “women’s rights,” but I’m not buying it. That’s just something cooked up by the liberal media, like global warming and aliens.
