As an employee you have the right to be paid for all the time you work including overtime, breaks, lunch time. If you work over 40 hours a week, you must be paid. Employers know that getting fired from your job could put the economic security of your family in jeopardy. It is against the law for an employer to fire you for requesting the pay and the rights you deserve. In fact, retaliation for many employee acts is illegal. If an employer makes a habit of not paying for the hours worked for a broad spectrum of employees, a class action lawsuit may be filed against them.
Discrimination, harassment, and being forced to work in a hostile or dangerous environment can cause all kinds of personal problems — and you don't have to put up with it. Talk to your manager and if your manager is the problem, then report it to the executive team. If you face a backlash, call a lawyer.
