Are you prepared to work unpaid overtime? (salaried)

Craig, 2 weeks ago

Many workplaces have a culture of salaried staff working overtime. The typical scenario is of workers not feeling able to leave the office on time for fear of criticism.

It's written into my contract that I'm excited to be 'flexible' from time to time, which I am, but I feel it's unfair. It's become an expected practice in today's work-obsessed culture and it's mentally exhausting. I'm losing my free time and almost becoming disconnected from life.

Are you on a salary? Are you prepared to work unpaid overtime?
