I work as a contractor,overseas,12 hour days,seven days a week.Our first forty hours we get,uplift and hazardous duty pay.Our next 44 hours we get paid overtime straight,which is just our hourly pay.How is this legal?

I work for a large defense contractor in Afghanistan.Let me say my hourly is 21.00.My first forty hours are paid my hourly wage (21.00) plus 35 per cent for uplift-which is 7.00 more and hour, plus another 35 per cent for hazardous duty which is 7.00 more an hour. So my first forty hours I am paid 35.00 per hour.

My next 44 hours I am paid 21.00 dollars an hour-this is called overtime straight.Just wondering how is this legal?
