If you work off the clock (before work, after work, or during your breaks) you are getting more work done than Management paid for. The company is responsible to ensure all workers take their breaks. If you do not take your break, you are working minutes for free that someone else could be paid for. Minutes add up to hours, which add up to weeks. If the Employer knowingly allows you to work off the clock, this is a violation of the law and you should contact your Union Rep.
