It's Time To Fix Overtime!

U.S. Secretary of Labor Tom Perez

Millions of Americans have been working overtime and not getting paid for it. The U.S. Department of Labor is considering new overtime eligibility rules that will restore overtime protections that have been weakened over the years - but they need to hear from you now!

Corporate business interests are fighting the rule change and will submit their own comments. That’s why it’s so important that the Department of Labor hears from you. Tell the Department of Labor to strengthen protections for people working overtime hours.

Please leave your comments in the form to the right.

I’m voicing my support for restoring overtime protections and giving working people a pay raise. Over the past 40 years, overtime protections have been eroded by inflation and weakened by previous administrations. As a result, far too many of America’s workers are being paid nothing for their overtime work. Please support the new overtime eligibility rules. We need to restore overtime protections that have been lost since 1975, and we need to index these protections to keep them from being eroded again in the future. The administration's proposal is the least we can do.
