    last year ive worked 7and half hours but no overtime pay. and it hurts because i am a muslim who has peroforming fasting during ramadhan and giving too much time for praying in the evening and waking up early and my schedule is 5am to 12:30 pm. if it will not change a very big problem for us muslims to do fast this ramadhan. 🙁
