There is nothing new about this at all. Businesses have been doing it for years.
I was always under the impression that salary meant you received x amount of money per pay period whether you worked 100 hours or only 10 hours but
that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.
I have seen "salary" of x amount of dollars per week but the employee must work at least 1 hr overtime and have seen "salary" of x amount for employee
that is working 70-80 hours a week but when that employee called in sick 1 day they had their pay docked for not showing up.
I have also seen some employees get together and sue the employers who make these abuses and get back pay.
I look at it like if you're going to allow someone to abuse You then You deserve it, If You don't like how You're being treated then walk away. (that
goes for all aspects of life)
