編按:台灣目前多數工作都屬於責任制、沒有加班費,讓不少上班族抱怨連連卻又無可奈何。你也常加班卻領不到加班費、下班還必須回公司line嗎?各國的加班狀況如何?他們又是如何看待「加班」這件事呢?

“I like my job and I’m a physical therapist but I wouldn’t work on Saturdays. Not worth it, no! I value free time more. ”
「我是個物理治療師,我也很喜歡我的工作,但我不會在週六上班。不值得,我更重視休閒時間!」

1.香港

我有個台灣朋友常加班
I have a friend who works overtime very often.

但她加班的事情常跟她的工作內容無關,通常是跟他老闆的私事有關
But what she has to do is not job-related stuff. Usually it’s her superior’s personal things.

但那個白癡還是照做不誤
But my friend still does it.

其實香港跟台灣都有差不多的情況
This kind of problem exists in Hong Kong as well.

只有台灣人這麼奴性?6國老外告訴你:關於各國「加班」狀況是...

比如像護士這樣的行業
For example, like nurses.

工錢很少,但有很多事情要做
Not enough salary, but a ton of things to do.

如果私立醫院能給比較多的薪水,就變成公立醫院就請不到人了
If private hospitals can offer more money, then public hospitals will have a hard time to fine someone to work.

2.美國

I know this Taiwanese guy.
我認識一個台灣人

He worked at a company where he got paid to until 6pm.
他公司的下班時間是晚上六點

And he had to go ask his boss if he could go home.
下班前都要問過主管可不可以走

And the boss said no, he had to stay, that guy wouldn’t get paid.
如果主管不同意,叫他留下來幫忙也不會給加班費

In America, that don’t fly.
在美國不可以這樣搞

It’s actually illegal to have you be working your job and not be clocked in and getting paid for that.
如果叫我們加班不給錢,在美國是非法的

And if you do work over 40 hours a week, it’s considered overtime.
如果你一週工作超過40小時,那就要算加班費了

What overtime is, is it takes your basic rate of pay and then times it by 1.5.
我們加班費算法,就是你一小時基本薪資再乘以1.5

Let’s say you are making $10 an hour, you would be then working for $15 an hour.
如果你時薪10美金,那你加班費一小時是15美金

3.比利時

In the milk factory,
在牛奶工廠

That was for the morning shift and the afternoon.
一小時大概15歐元,這是早午班的價錢

For the night shift we got paid a little bit more, maybe 16.5.
晚班多一點,大概16.5歐元

But the weekend is 12-hr shift.
週末通常12小時一班

On Saturdays, it’s paid 1.5. On Sundays, it’s double.
星期六加班費1.5倍、星期天2倍
