Since Obama declared that the new full time work week is 30 Hours, will employers be obligated to pay overtime to employees after the 30th hour worked in any given work week?

People are so stupid. Overtime isn't the only concern for employers. Or even health care. Think of all benefits awarded to employees at full time status. Vacation Time. Sick Time. Personal Time. 401K eligibility. 401K matching. Bonus programs. Commission programs. Raises. Moving expenses for promotions. Tuition reimbursement. Expense account reimbursement.

Employers are going to end up doing away with the aforementioned programs because they won't be able to afford them. So, the employees who have worked for these programs, will no longer get them because they will no longer be offered.

Idiots.

Do these people have ANY idea how this is going to impact the middle class and how they provide for their own retirement? They won't be able to do it anymore. You are going to get screwed on your 401K. And, you won't be able to invest on your own any more because you won't be able to afford to pay the increased cap gains tax (yes, an increase on investment income from money invested THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID FRIGGING TAXES ON).

That's the reason I brought up the subject. I am being cynical. I don't want business, America, or the country crushed and transformed into a socialistic Marxist lifestyle to Obama's likings.

Just heard a poll last night on the radio. 53% of democrats believe there is value to socialist Marxist policies.......harsh reality, but very scary.

I'm fine with what they tax me. I wish it was lower but don't get all up in arms over it.
I live in the best country in the world and haven't found one with lower taxes. You pay a little extra to live in the penthouse.

Not true. Many families are PAID and SUBSIDIZED to live in this penthouse. They need to PAY to live in this penthouse or be thrown out. Like you stated, It's not free nor cheap to be in the penthouse!

IF the workweek was 30 hours, wages per hour would go down to offset the OT pay needed. Many professions cannot effectively and efficiently produce in a 30 hour week. This ain't gonna happen.

Yes, I do believe many Americans are stupid. The results of this election has proven it so.

Just wait... people will be complaining when they finally realize what they voted for and how it will impact them. Its easy to vote for someone who says that they will increase taxes for someone else.(Akin to purchasing votes). But when it will soon impact them financially as well, they will be singing a different tune and realize that they should have read the fine print.

Gravy train? Oh how I wish you were right! Unfortunately, that isn't how really families handle financial issues. We both have spent our lives working hard, sacrificing, and saving our money. However, that no longer matters. We would be doing better off siphoning off of Joe Taxpayer like half the country does.

But thank you for the brilliant response. Just one more example of the intelligence of the American voter.
