Not true - I worked over 40 years as engineer in major Socal aerospace companies. Did lots of overtime and never had to work for free but engineers got straight time when hourly paid workers got overtime premium. Government contracts don't allow unpaid work because it makes it impossible to track real costs and gives an unfair competitive advantage.
