Legal "A bill recently introduced in Congress would greatly expand the exemption to the Fair Labor Standards Act for IT employees, ending overtime benefits for many more types of workers, including network, database and security specialists." The Democrat senator of North-Carolina has introduced an even worse version of the bill, which specifically exempts database and network specialists and security professionals from overtime benefits. Say, isn't some company building a huge data centre in North-Carolina? I'm sure it's all a coincidence.

In corporate law 70-80hr working weeks are the norm.


80 hours? Are you shitting us? What are you, a feudal society?
Note, the Australians I have worked with all seemed to leave at 5pm sharp and head off to the pub. All professionals.
