Under-Time is the shortage of hours given to an employee to do the same scope of work but in less time.

In the down economy, hourly workers are "expected" to "work smarter" and do added work and still get their regular work done as if they were "professionals" who owe the employer more-than-hourly performance.

It is often associated with a new RUSH assignment - or managers who get a BONUS for reduced labor costs.
