  • Holding off our breaks to make money. CA

    Im an EMT at a local ambulance company. Almost all of our calls are of a non-emergency nature (discharges from hospital to home, pre-scheduled appointments) and our shifts are either 12 or 24 hours.. When things get busy we can run calls all day and into the night without a chance to eat or even a break until late at night with the excuse that "Call volume (on these non-emergency calls) is high and were not about to lose a $600 dollar call". Is this ok for them to do?
