Finally, a sensible law is hitting the books: an end to overtime pay for IT workers. Quite frankly, the whole concept of overtime pay is ludicrous. Employees should be grateful for their job and work as many hours as requested for the same pay. It's completely senseless to pay extra because they are working over an arbitrary low threshold of hours. If you ask me, the first 40 hours should be free labor since people just waste that time anyway. If a worker puts in 80 hours, probably only half of it is useful work. They should only be paid for the amount of work I've seen them accomplish (which is almost nothing in most cases).
