Andrew, if that's who you really are:

Nobody is arguing against occasional overtime. The argument is against
coerced un-compensated overtime on a regular, re-occurring basis.

That is, if every week you are required or coerced to work 80 (or 70 or
60 or 50) hours instead of 40 and get paid only for 40, this is abusive.

Again, if working a flat "40 hours and not one second more" is your
for a job, then work for companies and organizations that support that.
If you go
to work for a company that is undergoing a lot of transition and they
tell you in
the interview that there may be some overtime work - don't take the job.
them thanks but no thanks, I am looking for an employer with a different
kind of
work environment.
