You work 8 hours a day no breaks no lunch is this legal?

Yes, due to the fact if u work in the heat all day they MUST let u sit down and eat or just let u cool off for a few minutes. This depends on how many hours you work in a day. If you work 6 hours in a day your employer is required to give you a 30 minute break for lunch, if you work 4 hours, then they are required to give you a 15 minute break-- both of these can be paid or unpaid, that is up to your employer
