White House plans to force business to pay more overtime

President Obama early next year will try to force employers to pay their workers more overtime by limiting which workers can be called "managers."
The administration in February is set to announce a proposed new rule under the Fair Labor Standards Act that would designate who is an “exempt employee” who cannot claim overtime for working more than 40 hours a week.
Blowback?  Absolutely.  Anticipate managers who do meet the new standard to be required to supervise more employees and existing managers and supervisors who do not meet the new standard to be put on the street.
