  • Overtime pay rules to be shaken up [View news story]
    Started at 15 working on a farm for $1 an hour. Worked long enough at my present job that I'm the second oldest here, and second in command. We are pretty successful, not many here work overtime unpaid, if they do, very few hours. We are all pretty happy. Those 3415 comments are over many years on Seeking. Oh, and after 35 years working, you get pretty efficient at what you do, so you have a little bit of time on your hands.

  • South Carolina approves bill to remove Confederate flag [View news story]
    The flag was first flown over the capitol as an opposition to the civil rights movement in the 60's. Enough said.

    Doesn't mean we throw laws out altogether.

    I'd bet they'd rather get the overtime pay after working 50 plus hours a week. Look at the jobs we are looking at - you work five years, accrue vacation, get slapped with a manager's title, work 10 extra hours a week - so you quit, start at the bottom of another retail store, start accruing vacation again, get slapped with another manager's title.................

    Is it capitalist to slap a title on an employee so they do not have to pay them overtime?

    Not so. Companies just slap a title on someone so they are no longer eligible for overtime. These workers' duties are often the same as when they were hourly. Laws are made so that greedy people can't run amok. Night managers at restaurants working 50 to 60 hours a week? Making 23K a year?

    The problem is that we are all human. Unbridled capitalism is just as bad as socialism. That's why we need laws.

    Too easy for a company to slap a manager title on someone to prevent overtime pay. Employers are the ones who tweak capitalism.

    Congress doesn't want to deal with problems that need to be dealt with.

    I lived during times when rates were much, much higher than they are now and the market was still the place to put your money.
