I'm sorry that you don't get treated fairly at your job. Perhaps you should speak to a manager about that. If that doesn't work, talk to the manager's manager. Or the district manager. Or the regional manager. Or the fucking CEO. But there are laws governing how frequently you should be provided a break. And I don't think those laws are so vague as to let you have a break simply "when you feel hungry". Those people have a business to run, so maybe you could have a sandwich before you start work so it's not too inconvenient for you.
: I just get so tired of the hassle of trying to get breaks when working at McDonalds. The stress is really the highest of any place I've ever worked before and I just wish the employees could be treated a little better. I always heard it was a great place to be employed and I have to admit I like the food and I am not a complainer as to the workload, but I just wish that the rules would be upheld better, and the establishment could better the conditions so that the employees would stay and not have such a large turnover in employment. I can't figure out how a big corporation like McDonalds can keep their business open when the rules are not upheld, and employees can't seem to get a daily break when they feel hungry. It's not like we have to leave to order food!!!!
