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.

Sure, my local Union decided to ban overtime for support workers (IT is listed under that category; we have unofficial understanding with mangement that anyone working overtime gets 1.5x hours off the following day), but at least it's not banned at the provincial or federal levels.

I can see this leading to situations where noone accepts a pay raise that takes them over $27.63/hr.

What a stupid thing to do during a recession.
