Legal "A bill recently introduced in Congress would greatly expand the exemption to the Fair Labor Standards Act for IT employees, ending overtime benefits for many more types of workers, including network, database and security specialists." The Democrat senator of North-Carolina has introduced an even worse version of the bill, which specifically exempts database and network specialists and security professionals from overtime benefits. Say, isn't some company building a huge data centre in North-Carolina? I'm sure it's all a coincidence.

This isn't a "ban" on overtime. It's allowing companies to make positions in these areas salaried without running afoul of the law.

Nope. This also applies to hourly employees making more than $27.63 per hour.

Which means, that I predict a lot of employees currently making less than that turning down raises if this passes.
