Yes, I work during lunch break. Actually because I work by myself and we do not want to close the door I get paid for not having a lunch break. (I can eat but not leave the store)
It was explained to me that normally I would get a 1/2 hour lunch break if I work 10am-7pm but sometimes I work by myself all day so I get paid an extra hour instead of getting 1/2 lunch break.
Do I get overtime for going over 8 hours for the day but not over 40 for the week?
