Tag: Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938
By Corinthian Scales, Section News
Yannow, when my minimal scheduled 53 hour workweek was the norm, I sure would've loved to have this option available.
The Republican-led House on Wednesday approved a measure that would give private sector workers the option of trading overtime pay for extra time off weeks or months later.
Busy parents? Feh. Whatever. An extra 20 days of vacay banked away sounds good in most anyone's book. But, of course, like pending doom, the Progressives have to opine.
Democrats say it's not fair to compare the legislation to similar flexibility that is offered to public sector employees because many government workers are unionized and have civil service protections against potential abuse by employers.
See that? You're just too stupid to carve out your own swath in life. Only the DNC Progressives, bureaucrats in the hive mentality of Mother Government, and Goonions can save you peons from yourself. And we pay their wages, and retirements? Insanity.
Amash, Benishek, Bentivolio, Camp, Huizenga, Miller, Rogers, Upton, and Walberg, thank you for voting YES on this legislation.
Note: Gary Peters voted NO.
