Make America Broke Again – Millions of Trump voters to lose overtime pay

Imagine if we could redo the election with a different ballot:
For President of the United States. Vote for one.
O Donald J. Trump
O Yourself

The subtitle of the alternet.org story tags an enduring enigma: The mystery of why people vote against their own interest continues.

One of the Obama administration rules requires time-and-a-half overtime for workers earning less than $47,000. That, along with other rules, are scheduled to be ditched under the Trump administration. The result would be the loss of that overtime pay by 20,000,000 (yep – 20 million) workers who voted for Trump. Politico.com reports the details along with naming other targets for the GOtrumP ax.

House Republicans are currently in the process of making lists of regulations that fall within their time frame and could potentially be repealed early next year. One of the major ones they’re eyeing is Obama’s overtime rule that requires companies to pay time-and-a-half to employees who make under roughly $47,000.

The rule is set to go into effect Dec. 1 and will be a top priority for Republicans to reverse, multiple sources said.

I’m sure Trump will figure out how to blame Crooked Hillary.
