‘Career killer’: Obama’s new overtime expansion under fire

expansion under fire

NOW PLAYINGMillions now qualify for overtime pay after new WH rules

As the Obama administration cheered “the worker wins” from a newly announced expansion of overtime pay, the directive drew a fierce backlash Wednesday from Republicans and the business community — amid warnings that the move could backfire and hurt workers in the end.

“These rules are a career killer. With the stroke of a pen, the Labor Department is demoting millions of workers,” David French, a senior vice president for the National Retail Federation, said in a statement Wednesday morning.

Policy changes formally unveiled Wednesday would make more than 4 million U.S. workers newly eligible for overtime pay. They’re intended to counter erosion in overtime protections, which require employers to pay 1 1/2 times a worker’s regular salary for any work past 40 hours a week.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~ Look Obama never had a job other than scooping Ice cream and as a community organizer he really is in far,far over his head he cannot stop meddling  yet because he is president we are stuck with “Mr. Know-it-all meddling in affairs he quite honestly knows little about   also spending millions of dollars on summer jobs for refugees . this is how he looks after Americans that cannot find work…Summer jobs for refugees man you can’t make this stuff up! Look I know Obama has a tough job but he reality is Ben Rhodes has been doing the bulk of the work for over seven years.

Signing off but never tapping out! God bless America!
