I can assure you that his PhD is a full-time job, which also includes seminars, presentations, lectures on WEEKENDS in Switzerland, Europe & other parts of the world. Here is the catch though: overtime pays are non-existent.
It is an incorrect assumption to correlate getting your PhD to an actual job. It's school, you're still being educated. Of course there isn't overtime. You're getting paid to further your education and the amount of research you get done is fully dependent upon yourself. If you wanna get done in a reasonable amount of time and start making actual money then you're gonna need to work more. And in general, salaried positions don't get paid overtime.
