i heard about the overtime law last year…but never really found out about the specifics about it. Well now its personally affected me, and now I had to check it out.
My brother, 20, recently moved in with us. He doesnt have a car, and the mall is close. He needed something there until he gets a car. He got a job in the mall at a new little pretzel shop. He is the first employee and picked everything up quickly. Hes been there a month and has only had 1 day off. He has been showing the other new employees how to do things. He also had been opening AND closing the store. The owner sprained his ankle and didnt even come in for 3 or 4 days. My brother does it all…and helps him tremendously…for a whopping $6 an hour. On this check he got 35 hour overtime (115 hours in 2 weeks). That’s alot of work and very hard no matter what the job. He was informed yesterday that our lovely Dickhead of a president passed a law and he is not required to pay him overtime.
Lets send some more money over to Iraq.
