in thread (OT) my first fired experience

Thing is.. As I understand it- past 40 hours one is a 'full time' salaried employee. This means the 'laws' about hours and overtime are fuzzy. That is, you are paid a salary- biweekly- but this is doesn't really define how many hours you work. It may be 20 hours one week, sixty the next. It's a give and take on being a 'full time' employee. This can of course be abused by a potential employer. Stating the job requires more time of work than 40- If you're not a full time salaried worker- And you work more than 40 hours, the employer is *required* by law to pay hour plus one half or some such number. Of course, not the case for a full time salaried worker.

    Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer.

    There are rules/laws about who can be classified as "exempt" vs "non-exempt" (salaried vs non-salaried (or the other way 'round)), e.g., whether or not you supervise anyone is one of them. If the labor board decides you should have been non-salaried, then you get the overtime you've worked...the whole time and a half. Doesn't matter if you've worked 20 hours one week, You get paid an extra 30 for the week you worked 60.
