Who passes this crap for overtime compensation? It won't force employers to pay people more...it will make employees be paid less in order to hire more staff or make employees work harder. You can't just expect employers to come up with money from thin air! It has to come from somewhere and at a expense to someone. The "establishment" makes the average person think they are doing them a favor by putting the expense on the small business owners that employs 70% of this nation's people.....all the while calling those owners "rich" and trying to raise their taxes. It won't work. They act like business owners have extra money they are being greedy with and want to force them to give more benefits and more money to their employees and pay more taxes while doing it. Business owners create jobs and opportunity by taking risks. The American Dream is dying. Since when was it a bad thing to be successful and reap the benefits of your hard work?! This Nation of entitlements is brainwashed into laziness and government control.
