No regular breaks no paid vacation and when first hired got paid cash then went to checks and at first I notice that my check stubs said salary I didn't every get paid salary so I brought it to there attention and out of the blue one of my next check stubs had hours I worked how much and how much an hour and time in a half but I notice they only gave me half of my time in a half
