    Obama is not stupid. This is a calculated move to sell the democrat philosophy during the midterm elections. His stump speeches will be pointed to as another example that the GOP is greedy and hates working people.
    Obama is even pushing the falsehood that women make 77 cents for every dollar men make. It's actually 95 cents when you compare apples to apples. But this faux logic will show up as the GOP war on women.
    Politicians have no shame.

    Save the overtime, and hire more workers.

    Obama is not a friend to business. First it is the ACA, then minimum wage hikes, now substantial OT. Is the DOL on board with all this? Does the DOL get a say in all this? Do business get to weigh in on the OT issue?

    Clueless is as clueless does. Another example of barry's total lack of understanding employment, economy and government meddling. He continues to focus on things that really don't matter, especially when Russia runs rampant, gas prices are through the roof, corruption in government, countless scandals tanked economy and the list goes on. I guess I understand why he would barry would want to want to focus attention on a non event.

    Does Obama even understand the difference between saleried and hourly type work?

    Overtime only works if you have a full time JOB!
