FML - The follow-up

I'm sure there are labor laws that are supposed to prevent stuff like this, but when the roads are closed, and no one can get in (even the buses have stopped running, and a lot of people reply on those to get to work), there's nothing that can be done. I'm stuck here, but I'm getting paid for it... hopefully, this snow crap stops before tomorrow morning, otherwise, I'll be stuck again. It's still coming down like mad :S

It depends on what your job is. I work for the entertainment business, so they can force us to work 12+ hour shifts without paying overtime and we must also work major holidays without being paid time and a half. I sucks, but someone has to do it

They will not and are not obligated to pay overtime or anything at all unless the OP is on the clock and actively working. Being physically present at the place where you work doesn't mean you automatically get paid for it. It does suck though... I wouldn't want to be stuck like that!

Hmm... well, I'm not scheduled to be working right now, but since I'm stuck here, filling in for another guard who couldn't make it in the weather, hopefully, I'll at least get paid for it! I guess I'll find out on my next pay stub!

2,obviously OP works to live or she would not be writing an fml about being stuck at work. And this whole situation is centered around the fact that she is, indeed, snowed in and cannot leave. I have no idea how your comment has a positive number of thumbs because it's pretty obvious that you saw an opportunity to post one of the first comments and swindled it by restating facts that we already knew.

She could work at a call center or many of the other jobs that dont require other people to actually be present. There are jobs other than fast food and grocery stores..

Actually, warm water freezes faster than cold water. It caused by some of the corks of being a polar molecule as well as expanding upon freezing.

#16, Fortunately, the OP is from Canada which is a socialist state with their fancy-schmantzy "free" health-care. She probably got a government assistance check for her improvised housing choice.
