Bobbi Bockoras Breastfeeding Story Goes National On NBC News

Pumped up: Breastfeeding mothers fight for rights at work

By Allison Yarrow, NBC News contributor

When Bobbi Bockoras returned to work at a Port Allegany, Pa., glass factory in June 2013 after giving birth, she planned to pump breast milk during breaks so she could continue nursing her infant daughter Lyla.

Enough already you tell her story but what about the plants side of the story. Its all about her wanting an all day job in a factory that operates 24 hours a day. And the MONEY she hopes to get.She is a joke to all who know several things were done to aid her by the plant none of them were good enough cause of the want of a day job and money. Get the other side of the story.
