    U.S. Department of Labour has issued aguide that tells employers how to avoid paying workers overtime. ..source CCN

    do you think this is what a government should be doing to the people that actually voted them in or do you think the government should be looking after the companies that paid for the campaign?

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    It's not surprising. Large companies already do that here - hiring two part-time people instead of one full-timer. All those pesky benefits get in the way.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    In my line of work, people who are paid by the hour have no incentive to work efficiently. At the end of the day, when work is not completed, they just ask for 2X pay for overtime and continue to work even slower.

    It can be a scam either way.
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    These people are government employees and cannot be fired and I am in no position to change their salary. Even if I could, they would do the same slow pathetic job they are now doing, just collecting more basic pay and overtime pay.

    Unless we are given the power to beat them, I see no relief in sight.

    In America corporations are owned by citizens "share holders" instead of being nationalized. When corporations have lower expenses "payroll" it makes larger profits that are paid in the form of dividends and increased market value of shares to share holders "Citizens".
    So yes I want the government to do that.
