This question already has an answer here:
I would like to ask about overtime pay. Most of the time I receive lots of workload to the point that it is impossible to finish it within a given time.
For example, I have a one-week deadline to improve an existing website, but judging by the appearance and code of the website it may take up to two weeks to accomplish. Due to this I managed to work overtime not just for one day, but even up to the whole week. Unfortunately this is not within the scope of overtime pay. On the one hand they didn't force me to do the overtime, but on the other hand they've given me an impossible workload.
I'am working with a fixed monthly salary, specifically minimum wage. Due to privacy matters I will not tell the name of the company. And lastly I do some preparation about the scope and timeline of the project, but at the end of the day the gantt chart that I've prepared is just useless.
How do I manage this one?
