Republicans are close to killing overtime rules, allowing “employers to cheat workers” of pay

More evidence that America is headed backwards in how the 99 percent are treated:

On Thursday, the House of Representatives passed a bill that allows employers to give their employees paid time off when they put in extra hours, rather than overtime pay. Overtime wages are typically time-and-a-half. The bill was passed along party lines for the most part. Not a single Democratic representative voted in favor of the bill, and only six Republicans voted against it.
