A 2012 survey of North American workers by Right Management, a workforce solutions company, found lunch hours have become a casualty of modern working life. Only one in five workers reported taking a real break for lunch. The plurality, 39 percent, said they have lunch at their desks.

The fast food giant, KFC Corp., did a similar study in 2006 and found that more than 60 percent of America's office workers consider the 60-minute lunch to be the biggest myth in office life.

Robyn Blumner of the Tampa Bay Times answers why:

Workplace expectations have changed. There is more work per person, office workers don't have union contracts protecting break times, and everyone's afraid to appear to be the one slacking off.

What's your workday routine? Lunch at a restaurant? At your desk? Or somewhere else?
