If you're hourly sure.. but most are salaried and they don't give a flying rip about 9-5.. but yes agreed with the sentiment that we need to stop normalizing over working

No input but just curious what is a ‘visiting consultant’?

I imagine its the consultant equivalent of traveling nurse. Or substitute teacher.

You aren’t oversensitive people are just out of touch with reality
