Assuming that you actually get paid overtime, what is the most overtime you have had to put in in a day or month. Have you ever picked up extra overtime in order to make ends meet, or to save up for something? Are you ever forced to work overtime for no extra pay (a practice that is illegal, but that some employers get away with).

I have had to put in a 14-hour day on occasion (6 hours of overtime). Back in March of this year, I put in 28 extra hours of overtime. I used the money to help pay off my student loan in April. On the whole, I don't mind working overtime that much because I get paid fairly well for it, and because I'm still young and stupid. My employer got in legal trouble for not paying some people overtime, so now it follows the provincial laws more or less by the book.
