7. I am in IT
I am exempt now. I get paid for 40 hours a week, but I don't think I have had a week this year except for holidays and vacation where I have worked less then 50. Since our IT staff is not 24 by 7 but our organization is 24 by 7, myself and other staff members are called back in, on all days and times for any issues with the networks. I was called in last night at 2am for instance.

No compensation or time off for the call back and expected to be on time to work early this morning.

I have never had anyone explain to me why "we" are special when it comes to over time.

Why don't I quit....medical benefits and the current job market.

If the economy ever picks up....bye bye.
