What about that headline / article to you summed up anything to do with your thread title / summary?

This should be HOAX'ed or something.


What you do is scroll to the bottom of the page, click on the big exclamation mark, and file a complaint. I did this about 30 minutes ago. Mods are busy, but they'll contact the thread starter, requesting that she change the subject, or the Mod will do it for her.

No where, save in some over the top "I hate Republican" world is that "ending overtime."

My goodness. It's actually an interesting notion that seems like a good idea.

Agreed, the bill is written in such a way that clarification will be needed.

I believe it to say 1 hour overtime = 1 hour off. This saves businesses 1/2 hour pay or time off.

Honestly, I am more than willing to bet that more people could make more money without overtime laws than with them.

It should be up to the employees and employer to decide.

If the company doesn't HAVE to pay overtime then they can offer more hours to their employees and everyone is happy.



Believe it or not there is a reason these laws are on the books.

(1) GENERAL RULE.—An employee may receive, in accordance with this subsection and in lieu of monetary overtime compensation, compensatory time off at a rate not less than one and one-half hours for each hour of employment for which overtime compensation is required by this section.

What needs clarification about that?

The OP is right. The GOP are whores for the rich and wealthy.

I really don't think the ignorant American people will ever understand that.


Only when this country is destroyed ( by the GOP) will they finally understand who they have given power to.


People so easily forget the state the country was in after George W. Bush and his republican congress got through with it


Alas, though, soon...very very soon we'll be reminded of the destruction they wrought under Bush after Trump gets through


This time WE WON'T RECOVER!

Can you explain why this bill is a bad idea and how it benefits them dastardly 'publicans?

This is a benefit taken away in lots of private companies.

It would be nice to be able to bank hours to get a steady check if you had to take time off for taking kids to the doctor or had family get sick and had to go be with them. There needs to be a limit on how much overtime can be banked though. Twenty hours is usually plenty to bank. Except maybe it would be nice to have forty hours banked for deer hunting season.

The employer may offer the option, but cannot force it


And then theres the real world...

“(A) MAXIMUM HOURS.—An employee may accrue not more than 160 hours of compensatory time.


I suppose with this law in place, employers wouldn't have to offer vacations. If they wanted to be a-holes.

Please explain, which the OP didn't either, why this is such a bad thing.

Over the top hyperbole isn't an explanation. It's just noise that people ignore.

That's not how the law(s) work. You would need to be over 40 hours to qualify for the comp days.

Did you read the bill? ...do you work?

Sure people ignore the truth all the time and thereby is the birth of tragedy


You refuse to accept the reality of my reminder of the past GOP destructive acts that dam near destroyed the country


The state of the US in 2008

IS NOT HYPERBOLE


The fact that the GOP ALWAYS wants to take away progress of poor and middle class people IS NOT HYPERBOLE

its the truth!

Nope. Just checked, it isn't.
