    Federal nor Texas labor code address meal or rest breaks. As such the answer to your question lies within your own company's policies. What does your company policy say on the matter? It would be perfectly legal to have a policy of "no" breaks.

      child care has no rules .. even down to going to the bathroom we have to wait till a supervisor comes in and then go to the children's bathroom that is located in the room..

        There is no law in Texas requiring breaks of any kind. It was nice of your previous employer to offer them but your current employer is within the law.
        The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
