Working Families Flexibility Act – VOICE YOUR OPINION
Except for the few exceptions there is a greater percentage of us that are paid by the hour. Republicans are once again trying to push the so-called “comp time” legislation. Translated-longer hours for less pay. This would cut the much depended overtime pay from these hourly paid workers. This bill was introduced on April 9, 2013 by Rep.
