Left By Her Husband, Left Out to Dry By Eloise

Detroit Free Press, April 14, 1954
Maternity leave was a requirement at the general hospital of Eloise in the 1950s. The rules stated that a female worker take leave the 6 months prior to her giving birth and a month following. One attendant violated the rule because her husband abandoned her and she didn't want to go on welfare. For this she received a 7 month suspension.
