Last Friday my crew worked from 2:30 PM till 10:45 PM without a break, and without a lunch. This will not occur again this Friday, we are all going to lunch.
If we are so far behind, then pre-shift my crew to 1:00 PM, so we can get a lunch break, and pay the overtime at the end of the shift.
The way our Friday work hours are planned, we will get a paid lunch (working more than five hours without a lunch break) every Friday.
With all the brain power we have in the front offices, we can come up with something better than what we currently have.
