Aussies work for free

‘Australians are slogging their guts out working overtime and most employees don’t get much thanks, with the bulk of overtime done being unpaid. [..]

A survey of 2931 NEWS.com.au readers revealed 91 per cent of those employed worked overtime in the week before the survey was conducted, with an average 9 and a half hours spent working extra.

While most people said they are required by their employer to put in additional hours beyond their standard working week, a whopping 74 per cent of those employed did not get paid.’
