Its called being a salaried or exempt employee. You get paid to do something, you make your living do that thing, you are a professional. Pure and simple.

And truth is, when one works all those hours, one can often be making substantially lower than hourly market rate for a lower skilled/lower paying job.

A quarter of century working in tech, I have worked more 80 hour weeks than many people have had hot dinners. It has its costs: friends, relationships, a life outside of work. Do i regret doing it, no. If I had it to do over again, would I....eh, not so sure it would be worth.
