Hmm. I'm in California and I've never heard of that. I don't think any of
my employers have either. :-) On the few occasions I've done overtime, it's
been considered to be covered by salary. On the other hand, I have very
seldom had to work more than 40 hours (not counting lunch) except right at
crunch time, so maybe I just never noticed.

To answer the original question, my work day is 7:30 to 4:30, and I can take
an hour for lunch. That's a basic 40-hour work week.
