Please be careful and take time for yourself...you can easily burnout with that schedule. Continue your maintenance sex.

Take a vacation. That's what I did and I was working 12 hours a day 7 days a week.

what kind of job do you have?

8 hours every day is not overtime. 10 hpours is, but it is just 2 hours. But yes, it depends what kind of work you do. So what kind of work do you do? Is it mind eating, or very physical hard work?

I remember pulling 12 hour shifts in a sawmill one summer. It was far away so it was plus another hour for driving. Very hard work, and mostly only 10 mins of break a day. It was really tiring.
But ofcourse most of the tiring comes from routine, when making overtime, if its some crappy job where you can't boil your blood.

I thought that most developed countries had restrictions to only allow a maximum of 6 working days a week. Guess not.

8 days every day is overtime in the United States. Anything over 40 hours in a 7 day work week, is over time (time and a half).

For our company, Sundays are double time if you worked on Saturday.

I work for a commercial electric company.

I'm an apprentice, so some of the work requires a lot of thought, but I wouldn't say mind numbing. It's also very physical, though not as physical as brick laying. I dunno, depends upon the day, and the work site. I was pouring sweat today crawling/crouching up in the roof of a warehouse.

The pool construction job I used to work was mind numbing, and laborious.

If they keep me at this new site, I'll be working 10 hours, for 6 days a week.

That's why you see the change from 8 to 10.

At the new hosp im working at they give you time and a half for anything after 8 hours a day and they also offer you a 50 bonus for staying for 4 hours, 100 bucks for RN. Overtime is where we bank money.

Have to make money and I like making it.

A lot of professional jobs don't pay overtime

My sister just finished a 120 hour work week if it makes you feel any better Fras

And that's one thing America can be proud of, we aren't pussies working pathetic 35 hour weeks

shh!

I don't care to work more than I need to.

In fact, I'm not even all that proud of it.
