President Richard Trumka Applauds Overtime Expansion Proposal

Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the Department of Labor proposal to expand overtime protections:

Millions of America’s workers are one step closer to earning the overtime pay they rightfully deserve but have been systematically denied. Working people called on President Obama to go bold, and his response will provide a much needed boost to our entire economy. This is a critically important step forward for the Raising Wages Agenda, but it is just that -- a first step.

The labor movement is committed to ensuring workers’ voices are heard, ensuring that this proposal is strengthened and fully implemented. We recognize that while the proposal will help millions of workers across the country, millions more will still be denied overtime pay by their employer. We will continue fighting until every worker who deserves overtime protections is paid for all their time worked.
