Expand Overtime in America


President Obama has proposed expanding overtime protections for more workers in the United States. I chose to comment on his proposed regulatory change today. I wrote:

Comment:I am commenting in support of the President’s proposal. Efforts to make it more difficult to receive overtime pay do not benefit our citizens or our economy. Making more people eligible for overtime pay beyond 40 hours of work each week will give them more disposable income, make it easier to pay their bills, and allow them to provide a better life for their family. More families will be able to buy homes, go on vacation, and purchase household goods that are needed. It is important to modernize the rules on overtime, and provide a boost for the American worker. I urge support for the President’s proposal.
