Depends on where you work, though. The writers at the company I'm working
at have been putting in unpaid overtime (exempt, all of us) for *years*. We
simply don't have enough people to do the work being demanded, and we're
not going to get them, either. Lot of documents going out that were written
by the engineers. It's sad.
