wages under subsections (4) and (6) of this section and wages payable under subsection (8) or (9) (b).(2) An averaging agreement under subsection (1) is not valid unless(a) the agreement(i) is in

double the employee's regular wage for any time worked over 12 hours that day.(7) For the purpose of calculating average weekly hours for an employee under subsection (5),(a) only the first 12 hours worked by the employee in each day are counted, no matter how long the employee works on any day of the week, and(b) if subsection (6) applies, the time that the employee works beyond the scheduled
