_FEDERAL_ law does not require 'time and a half' for more than 8 hours

A number of STATE laws -do- so require.

Federal law expressly provides that if there are both state and
federal requirements that apply, the method that gives the employee
the higher pay will be used.

Federal law specifically does _not_ mandate extra pay for evening,
night, weekend or holiday work. According to the U.S. dept of labor,
"these are matters for negotiation between the employer and employee
(or his representative)".
