If you were told by your supervisor that they like having single mom's work for him because

he knows single mother's will work hard because they need the money.. would you be offended?
Othman:

Offended? no.
But it's extremely inappropriate. If your boss isn't a personal friend as well, they have displayed extremely poor judgment.

Whatsup:

I would say that he is breaking the law. As a supervisor or anyone in management they are not allowed to ask individuals about their personal life like are they married, do they have children or plan on having children, what religion they are, etc.... I recommend reporting him to the human resources.

Bewitched:

I do not know If I would be offended, but I would definitely think that this supervisor has made an interesting generalization. I would also think s/he's an idiot.

Xtremely:

I would be offended for I am not a single mother I am a single dad. This not only a sexist statement, it is in bad taste, and if you seeing it impacting you, you may have a case against this individual but if you do go ahead by taking action you really need to fine another job before hand.

Chris:

maybe he is looking for a date and needs a woman with children. you should be very worried because children should have no bearing on whether she can do the job or not.
sounds like a pervert to me.

Newyrsevex1:

I wasn't single, but I was the sole support for a family of six. My supervisor said something exactly like that. I believe it was, "You have kids. That's an advantage in my eyes for managers. You know they'll come to work, because they need the money." Wasn't offended, but in retrospect, it is a little odd. Ironically, the supervisor was fired for embezzlement.
