    ...or they are disparate for a job...or maybe love the job more then they need the money.  During my peak years 60+ hrs was probably common but was chasing something so didn't think of it as a problem.  Fact is when hourly folk travelled with they loved it...most of the time...because they were paid "portal 2 portal until locals got up to speed then corporate axed hourly o/s travel.
