Not getting overtime pay happens when you have been classified as "exempt" which means sort of by definition that you have been specifically excluded from the standard.

Of course, companies have figured out that they can just declare all of their employees exempt and nobody will really care....but I am still a firm believer that entry level BA-grad positions in pretty much every industry should not really be considered exempt and should get paid OT.

http://www.dol.gov/whd/overtime/fs17a_overview.htm

The only one of these that I can see applying to an entry level position is the computer employee exemption (which I don't understand and I think sounds like bullshit...maybe they were special 20 years ago, but programmers are just normal workers these days).

GFs first job wouldn't fit any of these...he wasn't an administrator, he wasn't in sales or an executive. Its not fair to call him a learned professional with advanced knowledge (he has the same random BA as everyone else and no work experience), and presumably he wasn't paid over $100k his first year.

So sorry GF, I think your company fucked you out of OT.

The "learned profession" thing is interesting in healthcare. It cannot apply to a nurse unless the person holds a bachelor's degree. It also cannot apply to nurses that give patient care as the majority of their job duties even if they're a Ph.D.

I said it before: I don't find her attractive at all.  Her face is awful.  Also, what is with this website:

This isn't some historical website with photos of war heroes or something.  I'm also sure it isn't the last known photo of her before getting removed - I'm sure she as 357 selfies since then,

Labour is always going to be the biggest chunk of any healthcare organization and they had run at about 120% of budget, meaning labour alone was putting them in the red, since opening a few years earlier. In healthcare there's something called the 8/80 rule that says OT is figured over two week pay periods, so if you work seven days straight in week one @ 8 hours a day (56 hours) then only 24 hours in week two, you get no OT as it hasn't gone over 80 hours. However, the "8" part is OT must be paid for any day over eight hours if you're using the two week, 80 hours to calculate OT. So if you work 16 hours, under the 8/80, eight of those hours would be OT if you worked no other hours in the pay period.

Okay, that was a long pre-amble to say this place was working under the 8/80 agreement and then scheduling all their staff for 12 hour shifts. So every day a person worked they automatically got 4 hours of OT. It was sort of sad how stupid the folks running the show were but damn did they think I was awesome for that little observation alone.

Maybe I am in the minority, but I value money more than time off. My company acts as if they are a progressive work-life balance poster child, but the fact remains they will give you time off, but not more money. I think it is bullshit especially because not everybody values time-off the same way. I also think it attracts the wrong kind of employees in general.

You always have your Calvinism to give you meaning.

I'm not sure what I value anymore but I know I would like to never work again but continue to earn multiples of what I do now.

I work so I can reach a point, where I don't have to work and can do it because I like it.

Determine what you want your annual income to be then use a 4% spend rate to determine what size nut that requires. In today's dollars if you want 200k a year that's a $5 million nut invested.
