Why is the restaurant biz the only one where you never get more than a five minute break? 10 hours straight on your feet and you gulp down your dinner standing up like a horse. Every place I've ever worked has been like this. And if you try to carve out 15 or 20 minutes to sit down and eat (like every other job in the world), then everyone looks at you like you have 2 heads. The only exceptions were 1) a place where we all had staff meal together at 4:30, but we gulped it down standing up and 2) a place where we all had staff meal after we cleaned the line at the end of the shift. But that's not really a break, since it occurs after the shift. I reiterate the question, why the macho, no break bullsh**t?
