Words in English - Work the GraveYard Shift

Work the Graveyard Shift
Graveyard shift is a great phrase that native speakers all know.
First of all, a “shift” in this sense, means one time going to work.  If you work 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday to Friday, then you have 5 eight hour shifts per week.

Not all shifts are during the daytime.  Waitresses often work an evening shift for example.
Some companies are 24/7 (open all the time).  There are usually 3 shifts for these companies.  People who work the “morning shift” (8:00 am to 4:00 pm) then people who work the “afternoon shift” (4:00 pm to midnight) and people who work the “graveyard shift” (midnight to 8:00 am)  People who work in manufacturing or in 24/7 fast food restaurants like McDonald’s sometimes need to work the “graveyard shift“.
