    I would check your contract just to make sure, but its not ILLEGAL, just maybe against company policy.

    I worked at McDonalds for 8/9 hour days and they would often give me my break after the legal minimum amount of time being there (I think they can't give it to you if you've been there less than an hour or something?). I would often be working 6/7 hours straight without a break. Next time make large heavy metal objects fall on top of you... I got a 10 minute paid break when that happened, but I did have Mac Sauce all down my back...
    That is what I hate about working in McDonalds or any retail/food/pub chain. You get there and then fifteen minutes later you are on your dinner break. What's that all about? I don't wanna eat my butties at quarter past ten!
