Although he is going about it the wrong way there are so called management jobs that are nothing but an hourly worker on steroids. The front line supervisor or specific department manager are the ones that tend to get screwed the most. The most obvious would be retail workers. Managers now a days are given so much responsibility with unrealistic bonus goals that they frequently work overtime without overtime just to keep their job. There have been several lawsuits over the years the big box store employees. It's the large corporations/companies where these overtime abuses occur the most. Local management are nothing but enforcers of national corporate policy with very little discretion and power.

Company management have to work 10-15 hours a week unpaid overtime before they get it and wind up with comp time or more time off which many don't wind up collecting on. I've know too many in management who complain their hourly employees make more than they do. They did voluntarily chose to become management though and if they failed to learn from seeing what their management went through shame on them.

One last note. I'm hearing a lot o misconceptions about overtime. Most overtime comes from anything over 40 hours in one week not over 8 hours in one day unless your contract specifies it. Let's say you wind up working 12 hour days on Mon & Tue , work 8 hour days on Wed and Thur but callout sick on Fri. You do not get overtime.
