35. They need to strengthen, not weaken worker protections
It should really read "who make at least 27.63/hr or are on equivalent salary". Cause right now, they can give you a darn low salary and then declare you executive, and you are f'd.

As long as we are bound and determined to tie Health care to jobs, the exemption should also require that and other minimum benefits (retirement anyone?) to also be included to qualify.

Because as things sit, they can offer you salary equivalent to approx $12/hr on a 40 hour week, with no benefits, then work you 70 when they feel like, in the end paying you just $7 an hour. With no benefits. Aren't you glad you are an executive/professional?
