How do they justify skirting the state law that says that employees are entitled to an unpaid meal period during their shift?

What about all the employees at Worldport?

Yeah, I told her to inquire about it but she doesn't want to make waves. Kentucky law (where Worldport is located) says that for 6 hours of work, you get a "reasonable" (albeit undefined) meal period. It just kind of sticks in my craw to think of people busting their ass, being stuck at a job for who even knows how many hours, and all without any kind of significant break to look forward to.

My daughter works "part time" and routinely works 8 hour shifts, sometimes longer. As I understand it, there aren't even set schedules, they just go home when they're released for the day, so one may or may not be stuck working a full shift, and yet they aren't provided with a meal period.
