The bill has been introduced into the house and will likely pass. Proponents argue it will allow people to take more time with their families paid. Opponents argue that only people taking comp time will get to work extra hours, it will be the end of overtime.The truth is plain and simple:
if Cantor's bill passes, employers would REQUIRE employees to take comp time instead of receiving overtime, which would LOWER workers gross wages for the year and INCREASE corporate profits for the year.
The bill will state that it has to be agreed upon by both the employer and employee, and no one can be forced to work comp time.
