It’s a lesser evil.
I’m salaried, and this seems like a ridiculous idea...The era of salaried workers will be over, and businesses will just move to an hourly scale for everyone.
And with it will come timestamps, hourly work tracking, and efficiency studies. Fewer workers will be hired, and employees will be expected to cram more work into non-overtime.
I get paid fairly for every hour I work. There are many weeks I put in 100+ hours, and there are (every once in a while) a week where I put in 35. The moment I feel taken advantage of, it’s incumbent upon me to have the certification and marketability to move to a different employer.
This amounts to a revenue grab by the Fed...Pay your employees more of those taxable dollars or else!
Stay out of my life, government. I don’t want you in my personal life, and I certainly don’t want you in my professional life.
Yeah, Romney would have been just as bad......
