    There isn't any other way to deal with it. The law allows for administration adjustment. It was intended to be handled like it is being handled. Obama is certainly overstepping his authority in some of the decrees but not this one. A better approach would be to leave government out of it and let the marketplace decide what people should be paid. This action, like most of the administration's actions will hurt the economy, kill some jobs and cause some people to have their salaries reduced or have some people be replaced by others with lower salaries. This is none of the government's business.

    All that really isn't helping the little guy that so many claim to be in favor of supporting.

    I stand by my statement that Obama's economic and regulatory policies have hindered the recovery rather than promoted and supported it.

    Is there an executive position left that isn't salaried?

    As a side note. I tend to now believe that the administration wants high unemployment, probably to get more people dependent on government. Nothing else explains to me how consistent they are at doing things that hurt business, the economy and job growth.

    Re: OVERTIME OVERHAUL Obama reportedly to issue order expanding eligibility

    Maybe this is a stupid question to ask 195 posts into the thread but what the hell does the EO say? So far all I've seen is that he's signing (just signed) some order but I have no idea what it changes and haven't seen a synopsis on any of the major sites.

    Anybody got a link to the changes?

    Hasn't been detailed yet, so this is all speculation based on the initial leak.

    the businesses benefit from operating in the world's best market. following laws, rules, regulations (and executive orders) is part of the price of doing business in that generous marketplace
    Thanks for the personal attack and not answering anything I asked.

    here is your post; i have emphasized the portion which is a singular question:

    If it is for salaried wage earners, this would essentially turn them into hourly wage earners.


    How can the federal government void employment contracts between employees and employers?
    now, here was my reply to your question:
    the same way a change in the minimum wage causes employers to have to then pay minimum wage workers a higher base compensation
    now, that you might not have liked my answer does not negate the fact that i did reply to your question

    Come on...it clearly takes more than a 196 posts to properly spin something and make sure the narrative is right so the extra votes are in before the mid terms!
