Do You Make Less Than $47,500 a Year? Help Us Investigate Overtime Pay.

A new government rule could give you the right to overtime pay if you make between roughly $450 a week and $920 a week. But it's temporarily blocked in court and it's unclear whether the Trump administration will push for the rule after he takes office on Jan. 20.

(Here's a more detailed look at this rule.)

Some employers have already given their workers raises in order to comply with the new rule. There are reports of other employers who promised raises and then cancelled them.

If you make between roughly $450 to $920 a week ($23,500 to $47,500 annually), we want to hear from you. You can help us better understand the impact of this rule on your pay and hours.

Please fill out our short questionnaire.

2. How Trump Could Kill a Plan to Get You Overtime Pay

Donald Trump ran for president as the billionaire who would champion working people.

As the president-elect put it in one of the major economic speeches of his campaign: “Too many of our leaders have forgotten that it’s their duty to protect the jobs, wages and well-being of American workers before any other consideration.”

One of the first tests of Trump’s pledge to help workers will come in how his administration handles the complicated rules that govern who has the right to time-and-a-half overtime pay.

Business groups and Republican state attorneys general sued to stop an Obama administration rule that would expand who gets overtime pay. A federal court temporarily blocked the rule in November. Now the Trump administration will decide whether to continue defending the rule in court.
