So here's my "improvement over a typical Monday" story.

I used to work at Kohl's when I was finishing up my credential. Worked there for about a year and a half starting before the store even opened. Now of course there's almost no one there who I worked with. Such is the turn over in retail. Anyway, a Kohl's in some other part of the country got sued by an employee saying that they violated some law or another by not giving him his breaks. Which is kind of amusing because the management at my store was almost militant about making sure that I got my breaks.

Well, to make a long story short, I threw my hat into the class-action, and Kohl's settled, and I got my part of the settlement (in the form of gift cards, natch) today...

$115!

Shopping spree baby!

California has very serious labor laws requiring breaks and the like. I'm sure Kohls was militant, because if they weren't, they were required by law to pay you double your salary for the breaks/lunches you didn't get.
