Judge strikes down Obama's overtime rule

FEE reports that a federal judge in Texas has blocked the Obama administration's mandatory overtime rule, which would have covered formerly "salaried" workers down to about $43000 a year, story here. The judge said that the Labor Department had no authority to issue such an administrative law regulation.

I do wonder how Facebook and Google handle this issue with their production support.

But the rule seems mostly to help people who work in retail and fast food management.
