    Can someone tell me from the Central States what kind of break area are we entitled too. Our break area is outside and not covered. Said they did not have to provide a covered break area just as long it's a break area. Lot of our people. Complain cause when the smoke on break or whenever the break area is not covered from the rain and what not. Thanks

    Quit smoking and you won't get wet. :)

    The only requirement is a designated break area.

    Ours is also uncovered.

    There is nothing that says it must be covered . Did you want some reclining chairs to go in the break area too, maybe a snack bar?

    We used to have one Hell of a cafeteria service, back in the day.
    Good food and reasonabley priced too.

    Those days are long gone.

    So does are inside break area. If you want to smoke, go outside. Smokers get a 2 minute warning compared to 1 minute for the rest before belts go on.

    in capitalism you have to make do wit what the capitalist gives you. the capitalist is trying to maximize profits and keep as much for himself as possible and give you as little as possibel. and they are winning. pretty soon your break will be doing half as much work as you do when your not on break.
