California laws are a very flakey subject when it comes to laws, because the industry dictates what laws you have to follow, along with the federal labor laws.
For example EA games, one of the biggest game manufactures in the world, was over working their employees, denying them vacation, berevment, sickleave, etc and have been sued for it by current at former employees. EA claimed that the employees had no grounds because they are part of the entertainment industry and the laws which they were being sued under don't apply to the industry, the state said that though they were part of the entertainment industry their employees don't get paid enough to get the exemptions EA was using to work them like they were and that the exemptions didn't apply to the company or its employees, there was a settlement handed down by the court, EA is still fighting the ruling, nothing has been paid out so far as I know.

it depends on the industry... for example, truck drivers, cab drivers, bus drivers, private aircraft pilots, paramedics, firemen... have consecutive hour limitations and total hours in a week limitation. I don't know the specifics.
Other types of jobs are more open. California requires payment of overtime (1.5 hourly rate) after 8 hours in a single day (regardless of whether or not more than 40 hours have been completed in that week). This requirement applies only to non-exempt employees (i.e., those employees who are not salaried but are paid hourly.) Furthermore, non-exempt employees are entitled to a morning and afternoon breaks of not less than 15 minutes each, and a lunch break of not less than 30 minutes.Source(s): I am a lawyer in California.

You can be asked to work as many hours as they want. they must pay you for overtime depending on your schedule, contract or status. They are not required to give you any days off if they dont want to.
Bottom line, its your option... work your scheduled hours or quit.
