Is it illegal for a job not to pay you if you are requried to be there?

I work the weekend shift at my job. I come in Friday at 3 pm and do not leave until Monday at 8 am. Every night I am required to clock out from the hours of 10 pm-7 am. I am not paid for those hours but I cannot leave my work site. Is this legal?
