Does he get paid overtime for this?
NEW YORK (Reuters) -- A Chinese food delivery man was found trapped in a broken elevator Tuesday, more than three days after he was reported missing, police said.

Ming Kung Chen, 35, who worked for the Happy Dragon restaurant in the Bronx, was reported missing late Friday when he did not return an hour after setting out on a delivery.

In most states he would get time and a half for the first twenty hours and double time for the rest. Of course, under Bush's preferred overtime laws, the employer would have plenty of ways to weasel out of paying any of it and would, no doubt, charge him for the dinner he failed to deliver.
