Working overtime or working less?

Earlier this year the Obama administration announced the publication of a new Department of Labor rule updating and expanding overtime regulations (here’s an explainer article on what it is and means). There are numerous ways to show how this policy which was intended to help workers will actually hurt them. But sometimes the best way to make a point is with an illustration.

Prager U has a new video that shows how this regulation can prevent people from becoming salaried employees or even limit the number of hours they can work.
