Bush to Eliminate Overtime Pay
BUSH ADMINISTRATION SEEKS TO UNILATERALLY ELIMINATE OVERTIME PAY FOR
MILLIONS OF WORKERS

President Bush's Department of Labor (DOL) announced in March a dramatic overhaul to the nation's overtime laws that will cause millions of workers to lose access to overtime pay.The administration claims that 644,000 workers will lose overtime eligibility, but it's really at least 2.5 million and possibly up to 8 million workers who will lose their overtime.

The DOL described the change as "long overdue" two years after they had come to the opposite conclusion. The proposed rule will guarantee overtime pay to 1.3 million workers who were previously ineligible. But the administration is failing to provide the full story or even the correct numbers about the millions of workers who will become ineligible for overtime compensation.
