President Trump likes to put workers in photo ops. But when it comes to actual policies that support working people, he sides with Wall Street, the Chamber of Commerce and corporate CEOs time and again.
Now, Donald Trump’s Department of Labor is opening up a “Request for Information” in a blatant attempt to undercut the overtime pay rule, which is critical to our ability to earn a fair wage.
Click here to join with an enormous coalition of groups pushing back.
The updated overtime rule raised the overtime salary threshold from $23,660 to $47,476. When fully implemented, this updated rule extends overtime eligibility to 4.9 million more working people and makes it harder for employers to deny overtime to another 7.6 million working people who are already eligible. But Donald Trump’s Secretary of Labor has said that he thinks the Obama-era rule is too generous to workers.
Submit your comment today to the Department of Labor demanding the full implementation of this badly-needed, updated overtime rule.
Overtime reform is a key accomplishment in our work to raise the wages of all workers. Don’t let Donald Trump’s Department of Labor take it away!
