Thank you very much for your reply. Assuming that you are an employee and not an independent contractor, an individual in your circumstance would be entitled to overtime at 1.5 times your regular rate of pay for all hours worked on the 7th consecutive day of work in the workweek
If you are making 40 dollars for every 3 hours of work, that means you would be making $13.33 per hour. 1.5 times that rate of pay would equal $20 per hour, and that is what an individual in your circumstance would be entitled to receive every time you work 7 consecutive days within a workweek, regardless of whether your total hours for the week exceed any particular threshold. Any hours worked on the seventh day in the state of California must be paid as overtime.
An individual in your circumstance can file a wage claim with the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement for back pay overtime. Your employer will be prohibited from retaliating against you as a consequence. To file a wage claim with the DLSE, visit this link: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/howtofilewageclaim.htm
