Do i have a case?
I work as a business manager at a private pre-school. I get paid salary. However, for the past couple years, I have been 10 to 12 hours with no break/lunch. I am unable to do so because I have to cover in the classrooms since we are short staffed. The owner who is at the location everyday expects me to have my job description complete on a daily basis yet cover it. The classrooms from morning until afternoon. Too much preassure has been put on me with no breaks on a daily basis. Since I get paid salary. Do I even have a case?

The rest/meal break laws only apply to non-exempt workers. In other words, employees who receive a salary are not covered.
