Overtime Pay for Salaried Employees

President Obama seems to think that those who make at least $1,000 each week on salary should be eligible for overtime pay. While this is a good idea because if you work the hours, then you should be compensated, if someone is in the position to make that much money each week, then there should be limits on how much can be made. Sam Tabar (tumbtack) knows that one idea could be to have a scale to use based on how many hours are worked so that one person isn’t making an exorbitant amount of money compared to someone else who is making the same salary but working fewer hours. President Obama wants this idea to benefit those who are in the lower income brackets, but if you are making $1,000 a week, then it doesn’t seem like you would have a lower income. This seems like another thing that the President is doing to try to win respect and positive remarks before leaving office.
