If I get paid based on production (per line) am I still entitled to overtime pay?

I have worked for my company for over 2 years and have never gotten paid overtime for working over 40 hours in a week. I always thought this was because I was paid by the line but I have since realized that other transcription companies pay overtime for working for 40 hours so why is that different than my employer? In fact just recently she lowered our wages, took away our PTO and took away our on call pay and then said when I expressed concern over such a drastic cut in pay that if I wished I could work longer hours to make up the difference so I now work 7-5:30 Monday through Friday but do not get paid any overtime. Is this legal?
