Really? Might want to check what the real deal is instead of spouting crap. Federal or Texas law requires no breaks.

Federal law does not require lunch or coffee breaks. However, when employers do offer short breaks (usually lasting about 5 to 20 minutes), federal law considers the breaks as compensable work hours that would be included in the sum of hours worked during the work week and considered in determining if overtime was worked. Unauthorized extensions of authorized work breaks need not be counted as hours worked when the employer has expressly and unambiguously communicated to the employee that the authorized break may only last for a specific length of time, that any extension of the break is contrary to the employer's rules, and any extension of the break will be punished.

Bona fide meal periods (typically lasting at least 30 minutes), serve a different purpose than coffee or snack breaks and, thus, are not work time and are not compensable.

Really? Where do you get this that they are supposed to get a break after 4 hours?

Please post any relevant information regarding this.

Employers don't owe anything besided the rate of pay that is agreed to as long as it meets minimum wage standards.

Wait, wait....I think we missed the point. He needs brakes for his old Pontiac. A whole different subject.
