Do you ever feel like you are overworked and underpaid? Well, if you live in the United States, you probably are getting shafted when it comes to vacation days and paid holidays - at least, compared to the rest of the world.
If you’re working overtime and aren’t getting the pay required by law, you’re part of a growing number of Americans who are now filing wage complaints against their employers under the Fair Labor Standard Act.
