i work at a chain preschool in california. i work 9-6, most of the time i dont get my morning 10 min break because im the one going around giving everyone else their 10 min break. i dont get my lunch break until 2pm (5 hrs after starting work) and then usually they make me take my afternoon 10 min break 15 mins after i come back from lunch. is this legal? also they sent me to another school to help out but have not reimbursed me for gas or milage, when i asked about this they just said the other school wasnt that far

Waiting 5 hours for lunch is legal. The rest is not. If you want to make a claim, you can file online with the Dept. of Industrial Relations, Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, commonly known as "the labor commission." Just google it.
