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.

That's not catching up with the rest of the world; That's taking a step backwards.

It's generally considered progress when a society decides to reduce the opportunities where those with power can take unfair advantage of those he employs, on a whim, simply because the people on the bottom simply have no other choice but to submit.
