Oh, there are definitely salaried people out there who are asked to work more then 70 hours per week. I meant 170 - on salary they can ask for ALL your time, and then some.

Of course, persons this happened to would all quit, but there's really no upper limit for what they can demand.

It wouldn't work; the temptation behind my back would always be on my mind. So instead I would find a way to find another job, preferably before my inevitable drop in productivity ruined that job as a reference.
