    Like FDR and Eisenhower. Lincoln too, I guess. We have a long socialist tradition if this is the metric.

    Didn't say he wasn't. I'm saying a lot of guys were, if the metric is a 40 hour work week.

    Most won't be affected because they already offer overtime.

    The numbers in the article suggest it's not a big deal really. Says it'll boost wages by 12 billion over 10 years and that it will go to 4.2 million people.

    Wouldn't need to if the private sector wouldn't try to **** their workers at every turn.

    This is a slippery slope situation.

    What a loser mentality. Get another job if your employer is ****ing you. Can't get another job? Look in the mirror

    Not really. This hasn't been updated in 40 years and needed to be. We aren't talking about a lot of people here.

    Is this a problem that needed to be dealt with? L

    will it be sudden-death overtime, or will we play out the clock?

    That's a great micro argument. So you don't want easy access to higher education because you believe in the value of a degree(and not diluting it) and not the the value of education, but if groups of people are being overworked it's their fault because they just didn't work hard enough when they were in school? Really? Not being in the right circles, not growing up in the right families, that has nothing to do with it, huh? Executives always make the best decisions for their workers, without fault? Come on Droski, yes there are plenty of issues with workers thinking they're entitled to such and such while barely being able to do just one facet of their work but the issues with the American workforce aren't solely of their own doing.

    This is an awfully loose definition of "socialism". The final nail in the socialist coffin is that Obama raised the salary threshold for overtime?

    We have had right of departure in this country for hundreds of years. No one is forced to work a job if they feel it's unfair. Who said executives make the right decisions and all people start out on an equal footing? I'm not understanding the connection.
