Right to work state sucks!
So I started a new job and was informed on the first day as I ate lunch that we don't get lunch. I told the foreman to fuck himself. I was curious as to his claim, is it legal to not give any lunch break or any break all day? Why yes it is according to the Texas labor website, but it seems like it's only in right to work state's! So nothing new here. Texas politicians suck ass, corporate greed and religious pandering as usual. Also due to the hostility I have shown towards the foreman they have decided to let me eat in peace for a whole 15 minutes! I am now in the job market again, still working but I do not want to be a goddamn slave for some rich fuck. Anyway any thoughts? Anyone else run into this shit. Does right to work really mean right to fuck over your employee?

You have the internet at your fingertips. You can check what the law is.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Serious union-busting and labour abuse has been enacted in several states under that heading. "Right to work" is Newspeak for "No worker's rights". Welcome to belated 1984. Slavery is freedom.

It's not the mean god I have trouble with - it's the people who worship a mean god.

RE: Right to work state sucks!
The solution is:

1./ Lower your expectation for "standard of living"
2./ Find out what is the minimum you REALLY need
3./ Get rid of everything else
4./ Find a way to make money in small business (see my post on Bemore' thread at http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/forum/...n-to-life, Post #21)
5./ Be your own man

I agree fuck republican's. Dems too... but republicans for trying to kill unions. Of course Texas doesnt have unions at least not in my field. The worst part is I work with guys that hate union's. They like that corporate cock I guess?!

As someone who studies employment law as part of his commerical law degree I can hoesntly say that that is seriously fucked up.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

RE: Right to work state sucks!
Or you could just look for a job that gives you a lunch break. That's the beauty of right to work... you aren't owned by your company and they don't own you. You can decide what is and is not important for yourself. Your employer doesn't owe you anything except a paycheck in exchange for your best work. Why should the state force an employer to give you anything as long as you both honor your contract?

Better yet, start your own business and you control everything.

Because the power in an employment relationship is never equal.
ie: You have a family of four, you are the only income in the household. Your boss tells you, "no lunch breaks or you're fired", you are forced to accept that you will no longer have lunch breaks.
