I work at a restaurant as a server where we are not given breaks regardless of how many hours we work. I usually only work during the dinner hour so I just pump when I get home at the end of the night. Starting this Sunday (Mother's Day no less!), we are opening at noon and I am required to be there the entire day (probably until at least 10 pm). I've stated that I will need a break if he wants me there that long and he asked me how old my baby was - sounded like he was implying that I had used breastfeeding as an excuse long enough! I haven't received an answer yet as to whether I will be forced to work the long shift. Has anyone ever had this problem and if so, what did you do? I checked the law in PA and there isn't any requiring an employer to allow you to pump.
