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.

Can someone explain how this works?
I used to work in the IT field and I have friends who still do. So am I correct in interpreting this in that if you are on an hourly wage and exceed 40 hours you don't qualify for time and a half?
