Getting Paid for Overtime? That’s so overrated
Republicans are hoping that once they gutted healthcare and allowed churches to become their own little SuperPACS, you’ll ignore this little ditty.
The measure, backed by Republicans, would let employers offer workers paid time off instead of time-and-a-half pay the next time they put in extra hours. The vote tally was largely along party lines, with no Democrats voting in favor of the bill. Six Republicans also voted against it.
G.O.P. leadership has touted the legislation, called the Working Families Flexibility Act, as an attempt to codify flexibility for employees. They say it would be illegal for an employer to coerce an employee into accepting comp time in lieu of overtime pay.
Democrats stand in strong opposition. Their chief concern is that employers have the final say on when that time can be used, which means bosses can defer compensating employees for overtime work.
