Entry: "Hmmm..."

Someone enlighten this brother if they have the 411....A few months ago I was told by someone who claimed to have "knowledgeable sources" that there was a labor reform law recently passed that eliminated OVERTIME PAY for individuals if their total annual salary exceeded $22,065. Of course I laughed in the brutha's face back then when he told me that...The other day however, I was reading that corporate rag, The Wall Street Journal during my lunch and ran across an article that mentioned something to that effect, which of course made the brutha's heart rate, perspiration flow, and bewilderment quotient spike sharply all at once.....unfortunately, the paper was not mine and shortly afterwards I had to return to the salt mines for my daily forced labor (grinzzz), so I forgot about it until a few moments ago....Has any of my esteemed web family heard such, anything at all about the guvmint taking away overtime pay??

Hi Greggy, here are two links. The first spells out the current standards. The second has the complete skinny on the proposed changes. I hope your GM has the html option checked: Department of Labor
Overtime Changes

shocked Oh my dayum!!!! I haven't heard this non-sense. But while commenting here...I stopped for a moment to search around verifiying this. I found several articles about it, but it seems that Bush is trying to change the Fair Labor Standards Act overtime will be eliminated. I'll research this some more for sure. Tell me what you find if I don't tell you first. Take Care!
