Really Burriot of "Peace"? This is the process. We've had a crazy ass year so why not have a crazy ass election? Ya have a current president that's nothing more then a glorified used cars sales man making more threats that he can't back up.
Wishing for Thanos to snap away everyone of below average intelligence won't change anything... Spoiler alert, it ain't just stupid people who disagree with you politically.

My mail ballot was received and accepted by the board of elections on 10-17. The fact that anyone feels compelled to physically go to the polls during a global pandemic because of some ludicrous mistrust in the USPS is one of the surest signs of how low this country has fallen.
Despite the intentional sabotage of the mail system, it's not the USPS I distrust.

That's the only way Amazon can make a profit.
Well that, and the fact that their 8TB drives are really only 7.45tb after formatting.
They're nothing but a bunch of cheats.
Yup. Never buy anything advertised as OEM from Amazon either. I can't count the number of times I've bought OEM advertised goods on Amazon only to be shipped the cheaper non-OEM product. These are for products that say fulfilled and shipped by Amazon as well. If you don't notice, you're getting completely ripped off. Someone really needs to start investigating their business practices as a whole.

In the U.S. software engineers are exempt from overtime regulations. The company can pay it but it's not law. I've been in the industry many years, don't know of anyone around here that gets paid OT. But frankly I appreciate being able to work whenever I want and not keeping my time or punchclocking whatever. My particular company can get really busy if there is a hard deadline coming up but crunch is mostly not a thing for us thankfully. But you submit your own estimates for work, so if you're way over what you thought it would be you better have a good explanation or be willing to work some late nights to catch yourself up. Not required, but I'm sure it reflects on your performance if you never get anything done when you say you will.
As far as I know that exemption not restricted to just software engineers, but any salaried employee vs. hourly in the US. No Overtime pay for Salaried Employees.
That may have changed but I have had a Salary type job in will over 25 years.
Above $36,000. Below that, and they would be eligible.
How do I know that? In order to avoid furloughs when our revenue plummeted in March, my company rolled out short-term pay reductions. I took a 12% hit. The average was 5%. People making $40k weren't impacted, to avoid any chance of putting them below this, but I don't think we have many people making below $45k.
Apparently the Obama administration tried to make it $47,500, or $913 per week, but a court shot that down.
