you have majored in accounting and you get your first job as an hourly employee, an accounting/taxes clerk level 3. You are paid $20 an hour, or about $40,000 a year, right out of college. Fat city! Suddenly, it's tax time and you are told you are going to be working your butt off long hours to help people file their tax returns. You buckle in and end up working every single day for 7 days straight , 14 hours each day, from 7am to 9pm. (We will ignore 7th day pay, meals off, and such, they come later in the course.) How much are you going to be paid?

a. $1960
b. $1840
c. $2060
d. $2840
e. $1580
f. $1840
g. $2260
h. $960

FYI:

federal law: 1.5x per hour after 40 hours in a work week. (but no overtime for long hours in one day

state law: 1.5x per hour after 8 hours in a day

state law: 2x per hour after 12 hours in a day

state law: 1.5x per hour 7th day

state law: 2.0x per hour after 8 on 7th day.

also another note, do it one day at a time, not all together or the answer could be wrong.
