It's bull ****, overtime was created by unions who want their pay tied to such fake constructs to extract the maximum out of an employer.

    What is drivel about it? You lash out because I don't agree with your particular outlook of a nanny government, stealing from those whom have earned to give to you who don't. Here's a bit of advice for you, get up, take a shower, go out and get a haircut, and a paper, and get a job.

    Yep, true. FDR created many things that were destructive to future generations.

    The drivel is everything you post, devoid of any rational reasoning and intelligent arguments. It is all out of a ignorant partisan hack's text book and has nothing to do with disagreements. Nobody gives a **** how long you or your father works by choice. It is all about people worked to do more work so somebody can make more profits, but not be compensated more. Last I looked slavery was ended.

    Hey, you want to be rich? Find something that you can do/provide that makes you the profit to get there....Others owe you nothing....But you won't because you're too damned lazy to put in what it takes....You just want to bitch about what others have, and how unfair that is....Like a spoiled child.

    I am rich, very rich in fact, so this is more ignorant misdirection from you.

    Others owe you nothing
    I never said anyone owed me anything, so there in no need to post lies and more ignorant misrepresentations.

    But you won't because you're too damned lazy to put in what it takes
    You don't know the first think about me, yet you find the need to make up stupid accusations.

    You just want to bitch about what others have
    I did not bitch, but you are still posting drivel.

    I am not sure exactly what you want? A species of worker ants? Society has deemed that 40 hours per week is a normal work week. In fact, many studies have shown that quality of work, employee happiness, and overall productivity drop with overworked employees. Turnover rises. Families suffer.

    I'm sorry your dad had to work so much, actually. You should consider breaking that cycle and spending more time with your family.
