Yes, a tow truck driver is entitled to overtime pay during the winter months, as well as all year around if they worked over 40 hours in a single work week.
During the winter months, tow truck drivers are required to work long hours and many of times hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a work week. This is partly due to the fact that not only do these service companies operate 24/7, but during the winter months there can be an extreme increase in roadside assistance calls. Dead batteries, flat tires, auto accidents, and other problems for example are much more common during the winter season.
