Pregnant Women Getting More Rights On The Job

(Springfield, IL) -- Pregnant women are going to be getting a bit of relief on the job. A bill making its way through the Legislature would allow them to take more bathroom and water breaks, sit down during their shifts, and get help with manual labor. The Senate passed the bill yesterday and the House needs to approve a small change before it hits the governor's desk. Governor Pat Quinn has said he will sign the bill.
