Salary vs. Hourly

I am an hourly employee. My hourly wage is determined by $25000 a year, so it comes out to $12.02 an hour. When I am paid they just divide my $25000 by 24 or twice a month and that is what I am paid, not the hourly wage, though I am told I am an hourly employee. Is there a downside to this?

Hourly or salary

You have an hourly wage of $12.02 per hour. You are due overtime pay (time and a half) for any hours over 8 in a day or 40 in a week for the last four years. Are you receiving this? Are there others in your situation who are not paid for overtime? Sincerely, Richard Vaznaugh Esq., 415-487-0426.
