So California is trying to pass a law that Working Mothers who breast feed their babies are allowed an extra [PAID] 30 minute break every 4 hours to pump breast milk.
This is going to be funded by Insurance Companies and Tax Payers.
This could lead to higher premiums on Health Insurance and Tax Increases ..

What is YOUR opinion on this?

Do you think the breast feeding Mothers should get 'paid breaks' to pump their breast milk (and possibly increase Insurance Premiums and Taxes for everyone else) ..?
Or do you think that breast feeding Mothers should have the same breaks as any other Mother and should pump their breast milk on their own break and on their own time and not get paid to do it?

Breast feeding is a *choice* .... remember?
(lol, everyone always says that 'formula feeding is a choice' .. so should breast feeding Mothers get a 'paid break' to pump their breast milk, since breast feeding is a *choice*)?

No, I don't think they should get "paid" breaks. I think extra breaks for a breast feeding mother to pump are fine if she requests it but I don't agree with paid breaks. How many would she need? I mean it could cause a lot of problems in the work place and lots of people would take advantage and ask for more breaks than they really need since they are paid.

I think one 15 min break in the morning, regular lunch time, and one 15 minute break in the afternoon should be plenty. She could always pump at home in the evening, if she chooses to use work time to pump then it shouldn't be paid. That's just my opinion.

Should I get paid breaks to leave when my kids have a field trip I would like to attend? There are lots of things mothers could use breaks for.
