Also Colkrause, management is compensated for their position or they typically leave and go elsewhere. If a person feels that they are getting screwed, they can up and go elsewhere, or ask for a pay raise.

Colkrause, I'll agree to having teachers put on the clock as long as they are not paid during the summer. When it is all added up, teachers actually work about 180 days a year this includes snow days, summer vacation, spring and Christmas break, and Thanksgiving. They work 8 hour days on paper. But when you factor in that they get a paid lunch and usually a "free period" amounting to about an hour-to an our and a half. You get a 7 hour workday. So, a teacher that makes $50,000 (average for a teacher with a graduate degree), they are essentially making $39/hr. steady daylight, no travel in bad weather, all summer off, tuition reimbursement, bulletproof pension, tenure, etc... If anything, they've got it easy.
I say, put teachers on the clock too; let's see how many hours they actually work beyond the school day.

Why not? Fair is fair. Overtime should be paid if worked. Why not high management too. If the owner wants people to bust their buns 65 hours a week; then pay for it.
