Same here. Some people take all the overtime they can get. And to be honest, who came up with this 36 hour per month figure? Seems rather silly to me...

looks like they fixed the article

employees have expressed concern that the new 36-hour per month overtime limit will negatively affect their pay packet.

Dangs, at my job I do 2 to 3 shifts of OT a week which is 60 hours min a month of OT. Thats pathetic that their laws on OT are now stricter than my american workplace. I still get 2 days off a week two. I will do 2 16 hour shifts and 3 8 hour shifts. a week on average. FAT paycheck. If such a policy was instituted at my workplace a third of the staff would quit and move to another job.
