(h/t Atrios)

Probably not but that's where I was born & we refer to our part of NYS as the North Country.  About 40 years ago I learned that a goof friend's younger brother was getting screwed out of overtime by a local McDonald's and I attributed to one of delightful characteristics of what Sarah Palin calls "the Real America."   Apparently it's part of the SOP for McDonald's:
Two former McDonald’s Corp. (MCD) store managers, assisting with a campaign to raise pay for fast-food workers, said they helped withhold employees’ wages at the restaurant chain after facing pressure to keep labor costs down.

The ex-managers, who came forward as part of an effort backed by worker advocacy group Fast Food Forward, said they engaged in tactics such as asking employees to continue working after they clocked out or adding unpaid breaks to time sheets. They took the steps to avoid exceeding a store’s strict goals for wage expenses, said Lakia Williams, a former assistant manager at a McDonald’s in Charleston, South Carolina.
