Discussion on: Why Do Companies Ask For Passion?

I wouldn't demonize the question for passion in general. For example: an interviewer might ask you "what are you passionate about" to get a better idea about you and your values.

However, I totally agree that this can be easily misused to find out how much you are willing to do for free. If the job requires "passion" I would in return ask for the way they count working hours and how overtime will be compensated. Note, that overtime compensation makes only sense if there is a system established to measure overtime, otherwise you will never officially get overtime counted...
