Grassroots, there is a difference between tolerating abuse and being flexible when it comes to when you eat and other trivial things. I agree 100% that you have a right to know about things like health and safety and you should not work at tasks that you feel may endanger your health. But other than that, work is supposed to be hard, that's why it's called work.

However, by insisting that employers do this and do that, do you think this makes them like you on a personal level? I tried to get along with my employers and to the extent that this was possible, it made life a lot better for everyone. Some bosses are a#$holes and there is no pleasing them, but most of the time this is not the case.

You seem like a good person, if not in the greatest mood today, so why not try giving employers the benefit of the doubt. Assume they are not against you from the get go and see if you can't enjoy the natural flow of work. By making life easy for your employer, they will enjoy having you around and naturally want to help you in return.
