In the industrial field, it's called "speeding up": as the day goes on the conveyor belt that moves the work pieces is slowly ratcheted up so the workers have to go faster and faster....

I know most of your job interviews have actually been pretty positive, but just a word of caution for the next time (did I say "next time"? Who, me?)....

I've already worked for my share of assholes (and more) in my life.

But I can clearly see that life as a freelancer (or entrepreneur) leaves you with few choices.

One of the nasty things about "salary" is that so many people who are salaried aren't overtime exempt, but they aren't aware of it.

So the employer is getting away with even more than they would if it were the case that salary means never entitled to OT.

Life as a freelancer gives you a lot more choices than you'd think. You just don't know it, for a few years.
