Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says more salaried workers deserve time-and-a-half pay when they work long hours.
The administration finally released a long-awaited plan to update overtime regulations. It's basically a watered-down version of Obama's.
The so-called "Flex" work bill would allow companies to flout existing laws that benefit workers.
The omission of farmworkers from overtime law is a vestige of the Great Depression. A bill introduced by Sen. Kamala Harris would get rid of it.
Trump might make more workers eligible for overtime pay, just not as many as Obama envisioned.
If he does, fewer workers will be entitled to time-and-a-half pay than Obama wanted.
At the center of the legal battle is an Obama-era rule that vastly expanded overtime pay to salaried workers.
