But democrats in Congress sent letters to labor Secretary Elaine Chao asking her to withdraw the plans and labor unions protested with signs and chants on a sidewalk in front of her department. Monday was the last Day to submit comments about the proposal. A final Rule could be in place later this year and congressional action is not required. Business groups praised the labor department for attempting to update the 1938 fair labor standards act regulations which determine through several Complex salary and duties tests who must be paid a time and a half hourly rate for working More than 40 hours a week. Salary Levels in the Complex wage and hour rules Haven to been updated for 28 years. The last revision to Job descriptions was 54 years ago. Quot american businesses Are crying out for clarity Quot said Katherine Lugar legislative and political affairs vice president for the National retail federation. Overtime pay lawsuits for the first time surpassed class action Job Dis rumination suits against employers in 2001, and they continue to grow. The labor department says its proposal could affect As Many As 22 million workers. More than i million Low wage workers would newly become eligible for overtime pay or would receive a salary hike. About 640,000 professional workers would lose their overtime pay. A Union funded study found that 8 million workers would lose their overtime pay. Opponents say those employees will be required to work longer hours without extra pay if the proposal is adopted. That a because Over time pay acts As a Protection to tile 40-hour work week and employers done to want to pay that Price to get More work they say a your citizens Are working longer hours than Ever before a longer than any other Industrial according to a letter sent to Chao by sen. Edward m. Kennedy a mass. And signed by 42 Senate democrats. A at least one in five employees now has a work week that exceeds 50 hours. Protecting the 40-hour work week is vital to balancing work responsibilities and family needs. It is certainly not family Friendly to require employees to work More hours for less More than too House democrats sent a similar letter to Chao and Union leaders and members demonstrated.
