California: You Don't Need A Lunch Break

As if these poor workers weren't abused enough by these low paying service jobs, now they'll get shirked by employers by being forced to take lunches way too early or way too late in their shifts. I guarantee you the first company to take advantage of this ruling will be Walmart. Way to go California

I just think it's crap when an employee gets their 30min lunch 1hr before they go home, or 1hr into their shift. Not really fair to the employee. If the employer doesn't have enough people to cover lunches maybe they should... gasp... hire more people!
Then don't get a job in the restaurant business. cause peak time is 11:30 to 1:30 and Dinner peak time is 6:00 to 8:30. Restaurants are way different then retail or any other job. Sorry but I side with the Restaurants on this. It isn't good if your employees are on break during the peak times.

I'll agree to disagree. They know their peak times, therefore they should schedule better around them. I hear restaurants crying constantly about low margins, but I don't buy it. No sympathy from me
I will agree to disagree also, but toss this final one in. When you are a server you know you are mostly working for tips that is why your pay is low. If you don't like it then don't be a server.
