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.

I post those hours (not quite 80, but 60 on average and 80 on occasion) the bottom line is..... most IT guys that pull these kind of hours are not hourly anyway, they are salary........... and when you agree to a salary, you agree to slavery ....... but you still agreed to it.
