Good onya mate. So many companies here (as in 99.99%) have policies that are in direct contravention of the Labor Standards Act. They only get away with it because no one ever calls their bluff on it. Another common issue is the compulsory stand-down after extended overtime. You're not actually allowed to come back into the office until 10 or 12 hours have passed. Companies I've worked for actually do the reverse and dock your pay for turning up late, even after working till 4 am.
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

Sometimes I think "why can't I be a fuckin' English teacher, like all those lucky guys who make double than me and work half..."

Indeed, the two points that I complained about are related to working overtime. I understand that sometimes one has to make an effort for the company, and that sometimes you do "extra" stuff and you are not going to ask for those extra 20, 30, 60 or more minutes of your life. But...

Been there, done that, all I can say is I commiserate with the horrible feelings. Oh and working Christmas day was a particular highlight for me. :noway:
