KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Democratic state Representative Sean McCann of Kalamazoo has introduced legislation that would guarantee what he calls "rest days" for most full-time workers and 20-minute lunch breaks for shifts lasting longer than 7.5-hours.  The measure would grant one day of rest out of every seven for full time workers, with certain exceptions made for managers, agricultural workers, those who made their own bargaining agreements, and for emergency situations.

The legislation mirrors another measure introduced in the Michigan Senate by fellow Democrat, Senator Hoon-Yung Hopgood.
