Hi everyone,

I came by this article this morning and just had to share. Crazy! Do you feel that being fired for asking for a place to pump should fall under workplace sexual discrimination?

I think it is discrimination. It sickens me women have such problems. Thank goodness I dont have similar problems.

Its federal law that they must provide a place to pump ... how can it be illegal to fire someone over asking for it?
