    I am not aware of any law that requires them to provide air conditioning. It is a fact of life that some work environments are, by their nature, going to be hot. You can contact OSHA if you like but I believe you will find that they have no obligation to regulate the temperature.

    Neither Federal nor South Carolina law requires that you receive any breaks at all. The two seven minute breaks must be paid breaks under Federal statute; the 30 minute lunch break can be unpaid.
    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.
