Former KFC Worker Wins Breastfeeding Discrimination Case

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Autumn Lampkins was like many new moms. Months after giving birth in 2014, she had to work. She got a job at Kentucky Fried Chicken in Delaware that required a 10-hour shift. Lampkins needed to pump breast milk, but her employer limited her breaks and eventually demoted her. Now she has a potential college fund for the kid because she sued and won $1.5 million. That could buy a quarter-million two-piece chicken meals. It's MORNING EDITION.
