Time and a Half?

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!
