I know there are a bunch of threads out there on taking your lunch breaks. I have read a bunch and i am still a little confused to peoples views on lunch breaks. I have only been driving for a year now so obviously i dont know everything there is to know out there yet. I work in the East New England district and we get two 10 min breaks and a hour for lunch. I dont understand why i should have to take an hour lunch, i get bored after sitting around for 20 minutes and get tired if i sit around longer than that. I eat my sandwhich and relax and that takes me about 30 minutes. So i am wondering why so many people have problems with not taking the full lunch. I know some people argue that by not taking the full lunch you are working for free and taking work away from other drivers. But how is that the case if i enter in the time i take my lunch, and no matter how long i take for lunch, my hours worked in relation to 9.5 will be the same. So im just wondering if different regions have different rules and what people think.
