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.

Australian corporate law firms are run as partnerships. The partners are responsible for generating their own incomes and paying their own staff. Income is based purely on the time worked ("billable hours"). To maximise income staff have to work as many hours as possible.

If you don't like the long hours you work for the government and take a huge pay cut.
