Direct transcript of some of the debate on the "Working Families Flexibility Act", which has been nicknamed the "Pay Working Families Less Bill", from Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer's website. My take? House Republicans voted to allow corporations to pay overtime in time off rather than money, and to allow them to refuse overtime to anyone that actually wants to be paid money for their work... meaning there would be no financial disencentive to not force tons of overtime and likewise no financial incentive to hire more workers. It forces down wages, hurts employment rates, and devastates the idea of the 40 hour workweek. Or to put on my cynical hat: Everyone hop on the express lane back to the Gilded Age, where if you work hard enough for all 100 hours this week at minimum wage you'll be paid by being allowed to see your family for a day or two.
