We think raising the salary roof for workers exempt from overtime pay from $24,660 to $47,476 is a lousy idea. That’s because whenever the Feds tell business people how to manage their work force it inevitably ends up costing jobs.
However, today we tip our hat to “Progressive” Oregon Congressman Kurt Schrader. We’re pretty sure Kurt would make everyone eligible for overtime pay. But for joining with other Democrats to slow down the implementation of this moronic idea we tip our hat to him.
