Yes but only given the current circumstance. We are and should accelerate moving from employee/employer model too a contracter model. Benefits, pensions, etc cause corruption and impede the understanding of the employee.

No, while I support paying salaried employees, making up to $46k/year, time-and-a-half for overtime hours, that should be the business's decision, not the government

@Monica-VeraIndependent from Illinois answered…3mos

Yes, and increase to salaried workers who earn up to $65k a year

@9HSDCMSVeteran from Indiana answered…3mos

No businesses will need to compete for workers and offer things like this to be more attractive

@9HMXTLDPeace and Freedom from North Carolina answered…3mos

The government should not have a say so I. Private business

@9HK88DMLibertarian from Pennsylvania answered…3mos

@9HDT4T2Constitution from Wisconsin answered…3mos

Yes but there should be a decent limit so this is not taken advantage of.

@ROSCO70Veteran from Florida answered…3mos

No. But, if the employee works more than 40 hours/week pay time-and-a-half for over that.

@9HBCXK2Transhumanist from Georgia answered…3mos

No, let private business should be able to decide the amount of competitive incentives they offer to employees.

@9H8N2HWVeteran from North Carolina answered…3mos

I am unsure what the question is asking. Therefore do not feel educated enough to answer.

@9H6NT9KSocialist from Ohio answered…3mos

Yes, and all employees should be paid time-and-a-half for overtime hours regardless of their pay scale, and the government should do more to protect workers’ rights

@9H6PY2QGreen from Arizona answered…3mos

No, this will hurt small businesses and incentivize large corporations to cut full-time positions and hire more part-time staff

@9H5PYKQIndependent from Utah answered…3mos

Yes, but hour limit before considered overtime should be defined in salary contract.

@9H5G25VWomen’s Equality from Iowa answered…3mos

No, pay should be proportional to the amount of overtime the employees commit to

@9GYSR5JGreen from Washington answered…3mos

This question is poorly worded. Currently salaried employees receive not even single-time rates for overtime, never mind time and a half. This is worded in a "poison pill" way as a result.

Yes and no. It should be an option if the employee or union have negotiated for it or if the employer voluntarily pays it. Let market value determine compensation.

@9GV9M7XTranshumanist from Illinois answered…3mos

Could add incentives like tax breaks to encourage companies to do so, but not mandatory

@9GQ7QRMRepublican from Wisconsin answered…3mos

No, but paying them single time for overtime would be awesome.

@mtcoffeyDemocrat from Alabama answered…3mos

No, the company they work for should have to pay time-and-a-half.

@9GBFPMXRepublican from Florida answered…3mos

@9G9XNKDWorking Family from Illinois answered…3mos

Depends where you live. In certain states, 46K is a reasonable income but in other states, it's not livable.

@9G4W5Q4Peace and Freedom from Tennessee answered…3mos

No, and employees should not be expected to overtime hours.

@9G4RLNHWomen’s Equality from Michigan answered…3mos

Overtime paid at time-and-a-half should be standard for all hourly workers.

@9G4BC37Libertarian from Texas answered…3mos

@9G2WMNJConstitution from Alabama answered…3mos

No, and the government is currently over-regulating private businesses. Our economy and businesses cannot afford a decrease in worker productivity right now

@9FPZNHFDemocrat from Kansas answered…3mos

@9FMYPWNVeteran from North Carolina answered…3mos

No, but there should be a maximum amount hours for salaried employees in this salary range.

@9F8KBP4Women’s Equality from Virginia answered…3mos

No, but when contested, they should offer a choice of hourly vs salaried wages, subject to negotiation

@9QWCFW5Green from Missouri answered…1mo

If we are going to have wage & labor laws they need to be enforced.
