Pay per hour?
Rules are nice in theory, but it would be naive to believe that everything is strictly followed anywhere... Working overtime will also allow you to make a good foundation to gain higher salary and/or land a promotion.
Back in the industrial age, people worked much longer hours and didn't even get the chance to get promoted as easily as we do today.
I'm suggesting that you see the failure to comply to the working-hour rule as an opportunity for your carreer instead of an injustice.
