So I just started I contract job for 6 months and it appears as thought I do NOT get paid Time and a half for over 40 hours a work a week.
I thought this was illegal. I never asked the question about overtime because I thought it was illegal to not pay time and a half for over 40 hours on an hourly rate job.
I took this job ONLY because there is a slight pay increase.
however, my previous job I got overtime and worked 45-50 hours a week. This job will have similar hours. however, with the overtime not factored in I actually get paid LESS than my old job.
