  •  Not necessarily (0+ / 0-)

       I worked for a large contracting and software company - Compuware. Since the client was billed for the extra hours (if approved in advance), we were paid for that work. As a contractor I never gave anyone a free hour. When I worked for Union Bank as a salaried employee, we started out getting overtime, then just comp time and then nothing. A bonus system was instituted to make up for that loss, but bonuses were given out more for political reasons than actual extra effort. The bank CEO expected all salaried people to put in an extra 5 to 10 hours a week. Fortunately, I'm retired now.

    •  I should clarify that all hours are paid straight (0+ / 0-)

      ...time as opposed to what I call OT pay which is time and a half or some amount grater than 100% of the hourly rate.

      I think we 're on the same page.

      Eliminate the Bush tax cuts Eliminate Afghan and Iraq wars Do these things first before considering any cuts
