Can overtime be paid separately at straight-time pay?

I am a cashier in a convenience store. I worked 50 hours in one week. My check stub showed 40 hours, which I was paid for, but the other 10 hours was paid in cash at straight time...not time-and-a-half. Is this legal?

No, that's not legal. You should have been paid time-and-one-half. You can make a complaint with the Department of Labor, or contact an attorney to represent you. This also violates the tax laws, as I assume nothing was withheld for taxes or reported on your W-2.
