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.

There's probably many exceptions but I read the programming job with the most extreme working hours and burnout is in the gaming industry.
Many startup studios don't pay overtime giving the employees stock options.
The stock options gamble many times don't pay because either the studio closes or the game flop.
