Your Overtime Pay is still at risk

Three Things You Can Do to Protect Overtime

The U.S. House of Representatives has heard us and approved an amendment to restore overtime pay rights for some 6 million workers threatened with its loss under new Bush administration rules. The House action also maintains the one part of the rules that expands overtime coverage to 384,000 low-income workers.
President George W. Bush refuses to give up the fight and is threatening to veto important legislation in order to keep his outrageous, massive pay cut for working families in place--once again defying the wishes of the public and Congress with his actions.

One thing is clear--the Bush administration is determined to strip workers of their overtime pay. While Bush keeps fighting for his corporate allies, we need to keep fighting for working families who depend on overtime pay to make ends meet.

You can join the fight to protect overtime pay and protections. As of 12:01 AM on May 1 there have been 170,404 messages sent opposing cuts in overtime. You can help by doing these three things.

1. Send a message to President Bush, your U.S. senators and representative. Tell them you oppose overtime cuts.
