    OVERTIME OVERHAUL Obama reportedly to issue order expanding eligibility

    FOX News - Top Stories - OVERTIME OVERHAUL Obama reportedly to issue order expanding eligibility - Page 1 of 3

    President Obama, flexing his executive authority once again, plans to order the Labor Department to expand overtime pay requirements to include millions more workers -- in a move likely to rankle the business community.
    The president plans to make the announcement on Thursday at the White House, a senior administration official confirmed to Fox News. Though the administration has claimed previous executive actions had bipartisan support, officials are acknowledging that this particular move will anger business groups and congressional Republicans.

    I was offered a managerial job ten-plus years ago. The offer letter came to me with a salary promise, description of benefits, and a caveat that I would be expected to work sixty hours a week. So, I'll ask again: Just exactly how fair is that?

    So what would be your coherent argument against it? What is your argument against people working harder and earning money?

    Straight to hyperbole in post #2!

    I like being salaried because it gives me more flexibility in scheduling my time. I normally work 40-45 hours a week and am certainly not "owned". I've worked a number of salaried jobs in the last 20 years and was never required to work an exorbitant number of hours.

    "There’s no such thing as a free lunch," Cato Institute senior fellow Daniel Mitchell told The Times. "If they push through something to make a certain class of workers more expensive, something will happen to adjust."

    Apparently, Obama has never heard of TANSTAAFL. He should get out more.

    Re: OVERTIME OVERHAUL Obama reportedly to issue order expanding eligibility

    I just saw the episode of "Between The Ferns" interview with Obama and I ask does he possess any sense of dignity for the office? As the first and probably last black president he has all but trashed the position through violations of the constitution and behavior more suited to a 15 year old pot head.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
