Well, what I quoted is what our administrator is making us take.  Especially so they don't have to pay for the lunch (which is unpaid).  Actually, everywhere I've worked in CU in longterm care has required that of us, lunch and breaks.

small amount of googling later, I take correction.  I see what we may have is a local standard.  The 20 minute lunch is the Illinois requirement, no later than 5 hours into the shift.

Ja, I understand. The rubber factory switched from a half-hour unpaid lunch to a 20-minute paid one about halfway through my time there. That messed with people's heads, until they realized there was no longer a hassle to punch in and out on time.

Darn, I was really hoping that I'd missed something and that there had been a change in the federal laws.  I live in one of those states that doesn't require mandatory lunch or rest breaks.

I want to know when the last time a visit to the doctor was made, did they do any labs? and how are the electrolytes?  At the same time, since I got arthrisit in my right knee, my right foot is permanently slight swollen, and nothing seems to help it.

Visited the doctor two weeks ago. He did my yearly check up. All my labs came back fine. Luckly, no diabetes or pre diabetes. I need to lose about 30 pounds. I do not have arthritis.

One other point, if you are working an 8 hour shift, it is federal law that you get 2 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch. 12 hours would get you a third 15 minute break and a double would get you 4 and 2 lunches.

I use my breaks to massage my feet and eat lunch. I only take 5-10 minutes though because it's a fast pace buisness.

I went shopping today and got some different shoes. I also got compression stockings. I will see if I can elivate my feet during my breaks. I am also trying a ginseng supplement.

 My Aunt said that part of the reason my feet might be swelling is because they get poor circulation after running around on a hard floor all day. The ginseng gives an energy boost ans helps improve circulation. I prop my feet up after soaking them in epsom salts.

Thanks for the advice. I'll let ya'll know how it goes.
