(St. Paul, MN) — Nursing mothers will soon get paid breaks to pump breast milk. State legislators passed a bill that guarantees that no one would lose income to pump breast milk. The move makes Minnesota the third state in the country to require employers not to dock pay when mothers take that time. Illinois and Georgia are the other two states. The new law will take effect January 1st.
