    W have been working outragous overtime for the past three months. Our hours are 4 ten hour days Monday-Thursday. We have been working thirteen hour days and they want mandatory work on Fridays, which is all overtime hours, My wife and i do not have a babysitter for this day, and they say if i do not work i will be written up for not coming to work. Is there anything I can do without losing my job?

    Yes. Find a babysitter.

    I'm sorry, but it is up to the employer to decide what hours are needed. Nothing in MN law or the laws of 47 other states limit what hours you can be required to work, and in at least one of the two states that do limit it, this would still be legal (and it is potentially legal in the other one).

    Your child care issues are not the employer's problem, to put it bluntly.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
