Outside buyers of poultry and dairy products

Agricultural employees

Live-in domestic workers


Movie theater employees


I had to do a double take here. The teens who give me my popcorn and M&Ms at the movie theater aren't subject to overtime? I've been doing some research on this and I cannot find a specific reason why they are not allowed overtime, by law. I know companies will probably pay them overtime anyway, but I was stunned to see that they are not lawfully obligated to do so. Anyone know why? Thoughts? Comments?
