I think that the only function that needs fixing is my ComputeHourlyPay function. Could somebody take a look and help me out here.

you don't need the recursion. First compute the normal pay. Then if over 40 hours compute overtime pay. Here OVERTIME_SCALE would have to be redefined as 0.5

double ComputeHourlyPay(double hoursWorked, double hourlyRate)
{
	double regularPay = 0;
	double overtimePay = 0;
	double totalPay;

	cout << fixed 
		 << setprecision(2);
		
	regularPay = hoursWorked * hourlyRate;
	if(hoursWorked > 40)
	{
  	    overtimePay = (hoursWorked - 40) *  (hourlyRate * OVERTIME_SCALE);
	}
	totalPay = regularPay + overtimePay;
	return (totalPay);
}

Ok I see, thanks for that. Also thanks for correcting my code tags.

For some reason though when I input the hoursWorked and hourlyPay my out put is all $0.00. Why is that I can't seem to figure it out.

because ProcessOfficeWorker() knows nothing about the values of variables set by ComputeHourlyPay(). You need to pass more parameters to ComputeHourlyPay() by reference.

Here's my code now. For some reason I'm still getting zeros even though I added more parameters to ComputeHourlyPay function.

line 126: you did not specify the parameters are passed by reference -- you have to use the & operator to do that

double ComputeHourlyPay(double hoursWorked, double hourlyRate, double& regularPay, double& overtimePay, double& totalPay)

Still all zeros....I swear this is the assignment from hell. I put the & operator in Line 126 but then i got errors for overloaded function. So I put the & operator in the function before main. Still all zeros.

I wonder if I'm getting all zeros since all of my pay variables are set equal to zero. I did that so I wouldn't get an uninitialized variable error.
