More than 60 per cent of employees surveyed in a DAB poll work overtime and 80 per cent of them receive no extra pay for it. Of the 459 people interviewed in the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong survey last month, 61.9 per cent said they worked overtime. A total of 27.3 per cent worked overtime on one or two days each week, 20.3 per cent on three to four days and 14.3 per cent on five days. Half of these said the overtime amounted to one or two hours a day, 25 per cent more than three hours and six per cent more than five hours. Despite the amount of overtime they had to work, 84.1 per cent said they would not accept their employer hiring more people to share their workload if it meant them taking a pay cut. DAB legislator Yeung Yiu-chung said employees' physical and psychological health would be affected by regular overtime. He said about 60 per cent feared for their jobs and recommended the Social Welfare Department provide counselling.
