A Simplified View (Finally) Of Proposed Wage and Hour Regulations
by Michael Fox
Thanks to my good friend Joe Beachboard for his reference to the HR Policy Association's Simple Guide to Complex White Collar Reform Debate. The Senate could vote on the Harkin amendment which would block reform this week.
For fans of divided and it appears frequently stalemated government, Harkin's proposal is an amendment to the appropriations bill for Health and Human Services, which President Bush has threatened to veto if it has language which would scuttle reform of the wage and hour regulations. This issue was decided by only three votes in favor of reform in the House. Stay tuned for this one.
