Considering Congress is only "working" if that's whatcha want to call it....116 days this year....via Eric Kantor's calendar scheduling, yet collecting full-time pay and benefits for not serving their constituents....I think their idol Ayn Rand would be in a tizzy over that. Cut their salary as part of the seequester...it's wasteful government spending for sure on those evil public employees.

Action taken. It's like the Republicans are working against us instead of FOR us.

The contempt I feel for Republicans is overwhelming. They are a pox on our nation, and the world.

Have signed. Ending overtime pay is another step towards exploitation and indentured servitude. It's easy for the repulsive Republicans to be against overtime since they receive bloated salaries and Cadillac benefits paid for by "we the people". We as in the 99%.
The most interesting thing about them is OUR money.
Thanks Nancy. Green star coming at ya!

It isn't just the fault of the Republicans. I have yet to hear a (not so-)supreme court in-justice say, "You can't do this to the American workers"--no, they're part of the problem;I have yet to hear the "mouth of the White House" say, "No, these are the American workers, those who stood by me and elected me to office, and you can't take their freedoms". People, it's almost ALL of them, except a scattered few.
Not that I am defending Republicans--I am not!--but this crosses party-lines and goes from the (not)supreme court down to (probably) the guy cleaning the men's rooms in the Capitol Building!
Signed--thanks Nancy.

Why would someone want to abolish overtime pay? I guess some people have no conscience.

Noted and signed. Maybe we should all work for free, or just for food! I'm sure the Repugs and their corporate masters would love it!

Yet another example of the Republicans proving how little they care about those who aren't rich. They're a despicable bunch of jerks.

Signed. Thanks for the post. The neo-cons are trying to make the USA into a Feudalistic Caste system so we have no rights and they can jerk us around and abuse us as they please. Contact your members of Congress ASAP. Tell them that good people worked hard and smart to give us this good, middle class life. They have no right to destroy it. (You can get their contact info from your public library.)

I have an idea, if you don't want to pay your workers a fair wage, then your total compensation should not exceed $250,000 including stock options at the top of the market.

Of course they did. The Neo-cons believe that corporations are people, the humans working for them are not. Ironic, those same non-humans who work for them, keep voting the same Republicans into office?
Please, people, know your own self worth. You deserve a decent wage, and overtime for work in excess of a standard work week. Noted, signed and shared.

Again, the Plutocrats want nothing more than to have more, and that means taking it away from the rest of us whenever they can.

"House Republicans have decided that hourly workers have it too cushy when they receive extra money for working extended hours."

I would REALLY like to see a Republican work the average American hours with an average American job and see how many days they can survive without extra money from overtime to make ends meet. Signed. .

Republicans want only, what Big Business wants; and, so if Big Business wants overtime pay eliminated, then so does the GOP.
This is quite simple, actually.
