Easy. Crunch is the new trendy word. It isn't always that much of a monstrous practice. (snip) ...the company is asking all their much needed and respected devs to put their backs into it for the last few months, one extra day a week fully paid.
Yeah....this isn't the 'Crunch' that has been common in dev shops for the last 30 years. It's not 7 days with 12+ hours in the chair. This is just a little mandatory overtime to deliver a product.....which in the US is pretty common in most markets.
