Cantor (ALEC-ALUM) Wants to Eliminate Overtime Pay

Strongly Recommend that you read this diary over at Daily Kos – another hit against workers in the private sector.
Great coverage of a current issue – with excellent history.

In Eric Cantor's February 2013 speech, he said he wanted to propose Federal Law that would end overtime pay for hourly workers.

   and met privately with House Republicans to discuss one of the policies he had emphasized: a policy that would allow workers to convert overtime compensation into time off.

Eric Cantor wants to pass a Federal Law to eliminate overtime pay but not overtime labor.

Also, Under H.R. 1119, employees who work overtime hours in a given week might not receive any pay or time off for that work until more than a year later, at the employer’s discretion.

Nope - as the article illustrates for you - he didn't think that up "all by hisself".

And he had help from his years of training at ALEC meetings.
“Model legislation” from the secret vault of the American Legislative Exchange Council – to kill overtime pay.

A snip:

WHEREAS, private employers should be given the option of offering employees compensatory time instead of overtime pay for overtime worked,
