Salary Job/Hours Worked
If you have a job for which you are paid with a salary, your boss should make reasonable attempts to compensate you when you work well over 40 hours a week (either in time off or money). To be clear: if you work about 45 hours in a busy week, I think it's okay to let that slide if you must do it to get your job done. Outside of that, I don't think employers should be getting much more than about 40-45 hours a week of work from salaried employees. Unless of course you were hired with the understanding that your job would require more than 40 hours of work per week.
I think this is a very ignorant thing to do and I would like to see it stop. I believe opposition to this idea is mainly from interested bosses and workers who have an exaggerated interpretation of what good work ethic means because they are ambitious.

When they said "sit down", I stood up.
