    people are forced to work overtime without pay all the time.  A lot a companies have it set up as salary with overtime if you work over 40 hours a week.

    This is how they work it.  Monday is a holiday, so technically you are only working 32 hours that week.  They require you to work on Saturday, but because the weekly hours total less than 40, no overtime.  I worked for an insurance company that did that all the time.

    Also, some companies (Walmart being the most well known) will make employees work overtime without pay and threaten you if you complain.
