    Exactly. So what happens when your supposed salaried individual works 41 hours?

    I agree.

    That's pretty pitiful for a salaried job. Even $1,000/week is low in my opinion.

    It depends on whether or not they are exempt.

    I was offered a managerial job ten-plus years ago. The offer letter came to me with a salary promise, description of benefits, and a caveat that I would be expected to work sixty hours a week. So, I'll ask again: Just exactly how fair is that?
    So we have to accept that we will need to pay more for things so that we can get paid more in order to afford the rising costs of things? What is this actually accomplishing?

    Since they make less than the minimum, they are non exempt.

    So again, what happens to your supposed salaried individual when he works 41 hours?

    Yes, you found someone else who shares your opinion. BFD

    Let me know when you find some facts
    OR you might counter with a source that agrees with YOUR position. That might be difficult to find considering you are wrong.

    I've worked as management over the years in a variety of businesses. Like Gates said, "you can pick any 80 hours a week you want to work". Of course, with the insane amount of hours building a new software company comes with, that comes with the possibility of an insanely large reward. Every one of those workers Gates was talking about there became multi-millionaires. I doubt the hourly folks did.

    He isn't a "supposed salaried individual"; he's a salaried individual.

    And non-exempt salaried employees get paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours.

    And if you work for an employer that allows flexibility for its' workers, then you have flexibility. Employers are free to grant such flexibility to any employee, exempt or not.

    Flexibility depends on the employer, not the employee's exempt status

    That also a limiting factor, because that's all they're going to get. That's why we have cops who have to take a second job if they want to expand beyond their salaries. The exempt employee typically has a way to increase their salary at will.
