Get ready to pay overtime to more workers
from Buffalo Business First
President Barack Obama is working overtime to give Americans a raise. Congress has balked at his proposal to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, so the president is using his executive power to make more salaried workers eligible for overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours a week. On Thursday afternoon, Obama will sign an memorandum directing the Labor Department to revise the so-called "white-collar" exemption to overtime rules established by the Fair Labor Standards Act.
