Everyone deserves fair pay for the hours they work, and the freedom to have a personal life away from the job. That’s why we have overtime laws, which require that most workers be paid time-and-a-half for every hour they work over 40 in a given week. For salaried workers, however, these laws no longer provide the protection they used to.
