designed to dissuade or prevent employers from forcing their employees to work excessively long hours. These laws may take into account other considerations than the humanitarian, such as increasing the overall level of employment in the economy. One common approach to regulating overtime is to require employers to pay workers at a higher hourly rate for overtime work. Companies may choose to pay workers higher overtime pay even if not obliged to do so by law, particularly if they believe that they face a backward bending supply curve of labour . Overtime pay rates can cause workers to work longer hours than they would at a flat ...

Half Sigma: Why a career in computer programming sucks
It’s temporary because the powers that be keep changing the languages and tools that programmers need to do their jobs. In nearly all other professions, knowledge capital increases as you grow older because you keep learning more about your field. But in computer programming, the old knowledge becomes completely obsolete and useless. No one cares if you know how to program in COBOL for example. It’s completely useless knowledge. Even though I haven’t been working in computer programming all that long, I have already seen most of the technologies that I first began working with become relegated to the garbage pile. Visual Basic ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

"We had to get the job done by any means possible, which often meant working off the clock. If not, we were held accountable and written up.

California overtime calculation question: 8hrs and/or 40hrs ...
CA overtime law says an employee gets paid 1.5 x for hours worked over 8 hours per day and hours worked over 40hrs per week. My question is: If someone works 9 hours each day for 5 days, that means they have 5 hours OT. Am I supposed to pay 1.5x for the 5 hours he worked over 8hr/day AND another 1.5x for the 5hrs he worked over 40hr/week? Which means, rather than 40hrs of regular time + 5hrs of overtime, I'd be paying 35hrs regular and 10hrs overtime. I'm having an argument with the creators of the software suite I'm using to run operations, which includes a timeclock/payroll calculator. Pay ...
