Can a job not give minors breaks?

So, I’m a lifeguard and I work 9 hour shifts (11-8) and we aren’t given breaks. I told my supervisor that when I looked it up minors in my state are apparently supposed to have at least a 30 minute break in every 5 hour work period. He said that we don’t get breaks because we don’t “clean enough”. Can he do that?... show more So, I’m a lifeguard and I work 9 hour shifts (11-8) and we aren’t given breaks.
