Overtime Pay Rule Needs ‘Bold’ Action, says Trumka

President Barack Obama needs to “go bold” with the upcoming revision of overtime pay rules expected shortly from the U.S. Department of Labor, says AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. In the video above, he says:

Raising wages is the issue of our time. And President Obama has a tremendous chance to raise the wages of millions of Americans out there. We’re urging him to go bold and to not dilute the overtime regulation that’s about to come out.

In March, Obama directed the Labor Department to update overtime eligibility rules to restore the overtime protection workers have lost to inflation since 1975.
