THE BRONX - A Chicago faucet company is limiting how long their employees can take bathroom breaks.

According to the company's human resources department, if a factory employee takes a bathroom break longer than six minutes per day, he or she could face some repercussions. If employees don't take a restroom break at all, they can earn a gift card of up to $20 a month.

News 12 The Bronx hit the street to ask residents how they feel about the policy. Most people disagreed with the limit on bathroom breaks and said that employees should take as much time as they need to use the restroom.
