Bob Rauch on the EconoMeter panel as they discuss if more people should receive overtime.
Should more people be made eligible for overtime pay?
Bob Rauch: NO
“California, in particular, has very well defined guidelines for employees who are exempt from overtime vs. not, and the proposed federal guidelines will only cause confusion. Arguments for increased overtime are being used to overlook the real discussion about appropriate wage and salary levels for positions across all industries. Market conditions should dictate actual wages and overtime eligibility, not additional burdensome government mandates.”
