The other option, you always had, if your employer was treating you poorly was to find another job and quit!

I have also seen times when someone has had nothing but stellar reviews up until they complained to the boss that they needed a raise due to the excess hours they put in. Suddenly, the next review was below standard, they get put on a PIP with unrealistic goals, don't make the goals and get let go. The HR people know how to manipulate things to cover their butts. I know of another guy that had 33 years with the company, his department was the top performer in the plant year in and year out. His wife got sick and accrued a large amount of medical bills, company was self insured, suddenly, he wasn't getting the job done up to standards and they cut him loose.

I don't use the PM feature, so just email me direct at the address shown above.
We have plenty of laws to protect us....we just have to be smart enough to stand up....Like I said if my boss doesn't treat me fairly, I would find another job! Not look to a third party for help....that's just me and how I was raised...
Others enter freely into an employment contract, become dissatisfied and then expect to change the terms to something more favorable to them. If they cannot do so, they expect unions or government to get involved on their behalf.
It takes as long as it takes. Sometimes longer.

This is funny.
You want OT for more hours?
How would you feel about extra pay for the more productive worker??
No.....wait......that wouldn't be fair, would it???????
all the overtime rile is going to do is further erosion and elimination of the 40 hour work week...similar to what the ACA has done..To show you how misinformed the low information person is, many of my fellow employees thought the new 30 hour work week, were implemented because the hotel didnt want to pay the employees...the administration thinks that employers will pay the overtime, but they wont, because it wont be cost effective. They will either drop services or cut back on operating hours in order to eliminate paying overtime
