    The state of Missouri does not require that an employer provide you with any meal or rest break http://www.dolir.mo.gov/ls/faq/faq_general.htm. That having been said, your employer can not clock you out for lunch and/or dock you for a lunch period if your company does not grant you this time off.

      Do you actually work this long without taking any meal breaks?
