Just one more way the Republicans are always taking from the poor and giving to the rich.
In Eric Cantor's February 2013 speech, he said he wanted to propose Federal Law that would end overtime pay for hourly workers. Currently, the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA), signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, mandates that certain workers get paid "time + 1/2" for overtime work. Eric Cantor wants to eliminate that law. Because -- ya know -- workers not getting paid for overtime hours worked out so good for workers before FDR enacted that Law.

Eric Cantor's "end of overtime pay for workers" that he talked about in his February speech was overshadowed, in part, by the public whining Cantor did bitching that 'Obama gave his speech at the same time as me ... wah, wah, wah.'

Provide a link to said speech. Transcipt, video, audio, anything that backs up your claim. Until you do your words are just more lies by left wing moron.

Try not to make any excuses as you why you can't either.

He never said any such thing. This is why I switched from Democrat to Independent after the 2008 elections. I am so tired of the lies that come from Democrats.

It was a speech he gave on Feb 5, 2013. He wants to revisit 'house bill 1119'-"Family Flexibility Act" which would give employers the right to substitute time off for overtime work. Buckwheat is correct.

So what? Who,s working overtime? Many places have cut back to less than 50 full time employees to avoid the Obama care cost. The nations biggest employer Wal Mart tries to work their employees only 36 hours or less per week.

Sure. You don't work so you don't care. Just because things are slow here doesn't mean no one else is working overtime.

Some day you people will turn off Rush and Hanity and realize the Republican Party works for the wealthy. All they want from you is a vote then they take away a little more and give it to the rich and tell Fox News to convince you that it was Obama's fault.

I am well aware of that. You post that information often. Other people do have regular 40 hour jobs. They are the people that would be affected.
