Here's my cite, listing salaried employees exempt from MA overtime requirements. Exempt employees include a "professional person... earning more than eighty dollars per week," which seems to cover the position in the summary. And, no mention whatever of the 48 hour figure you give in the MA Official Website of the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development Overtime FAQ.

Where's your support for your claim?

Sure, if they're paid hourly, then you can talk about company and personal time.

But if they're paid a salary, they're paid for performance, not time. Does the employer ever expect them to work outside of office hours? Why should that be any different than someone doing personal work during office hours, if it doesn't impact their job performance?

"No, the 5G network will be what the The Next Generation..."

Oh, bullshit. You've fallen for marketing. No one voted them in charge of the dictionary, and what "generation" means. They're like the advertisers who decided "synthetic" oil doesn't have to be synthetic, that it can be whatever suits their purposes.

First, "G" means generation, so what some industry marketing group says it means, it doesn't.

In the US,
5G=what's next.

XLTE seems to be a marketing term used to indicate an increase in available channels (spectrum), not a fundamental increase in speed due to a change of modulation. Any speed increase is due to less sharing of spectrum. It seems that's what ATT is doing here. OTOH, VZW seems to be increasing throughput with their LTE-A, which uses wider channels. So I believe that VZW has a more correct claim for 5G (although I haven't seen them make that claim), since their tech allows more potential bandwidth for individual devices.

Someone feel free to jump in if that's incorrect.

Comment And yet... (Score 5, Interesting) 285

It's quite obvious that the reason was to lower costs, not because they specifically wanted younger workers from some foreign land. That's not age or national origin discrimination. The only argument to make it so would be if they failed to offer the previous employees an opportunity to keep their jobs, but at pay competitive with the new employees.

And they almost certainly didn't make that offer, so here's a sincere wish of good luck with the lawsuit.

It's widely taught in the US that human flight was first done by the Montgolfliers, in France (unless you believe in Icarus). Americans only claim the first sustained, controlled, powered heavier-than-air manned flight (and the Federation Aeronautique Internationale agrees). You know, like the vast majority of modern day flights.

Why are you so insecure?
