forced OT in PA?

I live and work in PA. When I work more than 40 hours a week, my employer pays me overtime, which is great. The trouble is that I don't want to work overtime; I want to have a life and spend time with my family. But my boss insists that I have no choice -- I have to either work the overtime or look for another job. Is it legal to make me work overtime in PA when I don't want to?

Forced Overtime is Legal

Generally, in Pennsylvania, an employer may require that their employees work overtime as part of their job. However, if your employer is singling you out for OT because of your age, race, gender, etc., you may have a claim.
