H2H, note that I did not say that contractors are using a 35 hour work week.  I said "employers" are.  Amazon has done this for some employers.  I think Ben and Jerry's has as well as some tech firms and universities.

Right. Got it. So ... not relevant information.

Not so.  The FLSA applies to non-contractors as well as contractors.  Thus, any employer can establish what it considers a standard work week for its exempt employees.

The presence of a standard implies that some are non-standard.

I once worked for a consulting engineer firm whose standard work week was 45 hours (9 hours per day.).  Unfortunately, I wasn’t told that little fact until the first day of work - after we sold our house in one town and moved 112 miles to the new town.
