Over Time


I'm new to the framing industry. Word on the street is that most framing contractors are paying any overtime in cash, which is illegal, but otherwise can't afford to pay overtime wages. Anyone else doing this? Or know a loophole?

I interpreted this post as you are the employee, not employer. If you're the boss, you should know what shady companies do and what legit ops do by now. There's plenty of both. So which are you?

I am not sure I understand your narrative. Are you saying that they pay overtime in cash at standard rates? or at overtime pay?

It's not illegal to pay someone in cash, just illegal to not report it as income to the FEDs.

That's trying to finish up so you do not need to come back tomorrow, no extra $ involved.
