    FLSA overtime is time worked over 40 hours in a week.  By contract overtime may be paid for work over 8 hours in a day.  For public employees only FLSA overtime can be converted into comp time.  The comp time bank cannot exceed 150 hours for normal workers or 500 hours for emergency workers , police,  fire, EMTs.  The comp time can be converted back into pay by request.  getting a comp time day off is not always easy.
    I had a good union job in the public sector, now retired.  Explaining FLSA OT was not easy.
    Having overtime pay  helps more people get hired.  If the work is there it is cheaper to hire extra help.
