    businesses will find a way of working around it, especially businesses that sells merchandise for consumers.

    oh and James, you wont work past 9pm at Ingrams. when they do overtime, you come in 2 hrs early and leave at 9 like you normally do.

    rant

    My company has or had a class action suit about this B.S. I work for one of the aforementioned "insurance firms" and this federal law was designed to help hinder this kind of crap.

    If you are asked to work longer than your scheduled shift, then you are either paid over-time or are offered paid leave. That's how its supposed to work. But when the overtime is measured in minutes and not hours, its diffcult to keep up with it. Both for the employer and the employee.

    My employers class action suit and several others are for employees that work in phone units where you can't just hang up on a call because its your time to go home. Some smart attorney figured out if he ruffled enough feathers and made enough promises, someone would finally agree to be his bitch and help him get a suit filed.

    Companies for the MOST PART do the right thing. Attorneys seeking to screw, I mean sue, the man for the MOST PART do not.

    I will quit my job if I lose my overtime. Last year I made over 5 grand in ot. Then there are weeks like this week where I have to cover my managers shift and work close to 80 hours, I will not do this for free.

    I work a ton of overtime, around 11k worth last year. The thing that sucks though is the govt takes most of it. I work overtime and don't end up making shit. Becasue it bumps me up into a higher tax bracket and the govt ends up taking most of it.

    What they should do is pass a bill that changes how much they tax overtime, split the taxes into a straight time and overtime categories. That would be sweet, so the extra hours you work you actually get some benefit.

    umm, i think you are confused.

    if you work exactly 40 hours a week, and are hourly, you will have the exact same tax cut that you would if you are salary

    Well, they take more taxes out when you get paid every two weeks vs every week. Sometimes he'd take taxes out of one check from both weeks combined, instead of week by week.

    You're very right. If you make 300 bucks in one week they will take 100 dollars out if they tax you 1/3rd like you said

    If you work 2 weeks and make 600 dollars they take more money out of your pay check 200 dollars VS 100 dollers...... Hmmm so thats 2/6ths so yup more money then if you were to work one week

    My boss told me it does not effect us so WOOHOO! for me =)
