57. There are contracting shops (like Collabera)
that have decided that anyone who touches a computer is an IT worker, even though lawsuits have decided to the contrary. Your contract reads that you will be paid straight time for any hours over 40.

Talk to them about it? All the recruiters are from India and do not understand you when you speak of such things.

On the upside, even if you sign the contract, you cannot sign away your rights. You can sue later.

As I understand it, anyway.
