Public hearing to restore overtime pay
From Working Washington:
Last month, Washington state announced a bold plan to restore overtime protections for hundreds of thousands of salaried workers in our state. Under the state's plan, if you’re paid less than about $70,000 year, you’ll get overtime pay when you work overtime hours, regardless of your job title, and regardless of whether you’re hourly or salaried.
This would be a huge step forward to bring back the promise of the 40-hour workweek, and we’re this close to getting it done… but we need your support!
There’s a big public hearing in Bellingham at 9am on Wednesday, July 17th — can you be there? Click here to RSVP & get all the details.
