Mom Denied Right to Pump at Work, Told It's "Disgusting" (VIDEO)

Did you ever have a negative work experience related to pumping? 

Single mom Kristen Joseph certainly has. Kristen balances caring for her 6-month-old son with working as a server in Hennessey's Tavern, a restaurant in Seal Beach. Usually she takes a 10-minute break during her shgift to pump her breast milk in her manager's office, but this past week the on-duty manager would not give her the office keys, saying it was disgusting and that people eat there.

This guy should be suspended for calling pumping of breast milk disgusting. Does he have a wife or kids?

Horrible! I pump at work and we have a 'Maternity Room' that has a chair, desk and a mini fridge. It's sad that this woman has to deal with BS like this. The restaurant has a FB page, I would do a search for 'Hennessey's Seal Beach' and send a message about how ridiculous they are.

I stopped nursing because the place I worked would only allow me to pump in the restroom. I feel for this woman and anybody else that has had a hard time with this issue.

Wow, that is so ridiculous! I'm pretty lucky, I pump at work and have a nice, cozy little room where I can surf the internet while I pump. My coworkers call it the Lactation Station. :) I can't imagine being told that it's disgusting.
