normally, an eight hour day (in the US) is a nine hour day (8-5)... 
you get a half hour for lunch, and two fifteen minute breaks...

in the salary world, while this applies somewhat, it's much more 
free-form... but hourly workers get this enforced much more 

i think the laws on the books are you are required to take a 15 
minute break for every 4 hours worked, and an additional half-hour 
break if you work 8 hours...

none of that counts toward your hours on the day, depending on 
your boss...
