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.

In that case, the original law that this applies to is already illegal (actually, it's unconstitutional, because Congress makes the laws, the only document governing them is the Constitution).

By the way, I do agree with you... all facets of the law (existing and new) are overreaching of Congress into the hands of the private. Then again, most of what Congress, and the government as a whole, does is blatantly unconstitutional.
