Texas judge strikes down Obama-era overtime regulation
The Hill reports a Texas judge has struck down an overtime regulation issued under the Obama administration that would have increased the amount that must be paid to an overtime-exempt worker to more than $47,000. The current level is little more than $23,000.
The regulation had caused much fear and confusion in many businesses. The Hill reports the judge said the regulation was flawed because it was based on salaries rather than job descriptions.
The National Association of Manufacturers and Associated Industries of Missouri, the Missouri official designated partner of the NAM, applauded the court decision.
