When you work overtime on holidays, weekends, during the birth of your son, days when everyone else is on vacation... aren't you supposed to get time and a half?
My beloved just worked two weeks straight of 18 to 20 hour days, non-stop, around the clock, quick naps and short nights. He worked through one weekend, then worked again through the next -- the 4th of July.
What does he get for around-the-clock devotion?
Time and a half?
Nah. How about the new company rule that went into effect while he was gone: "One comp day for every two weekend days / holiday days worked."
What's that? Half time?
Invest 2, get 1 in return...
Yikes, how motivating!
