Plan would grant overtime pay for 290K New Yorkers

"A new White House plan to extend overtime protections for workers could benefit up to 290,000 full-time salaried workers in New York and 5 million nationwide in its first year", as reported by Tatiana Cirisano in the Times Union.

"President Barack Obama on Tuesday announced that the U.S. Department of Labor will propose a rule to update requirements for overtime pay eligibility, which currently apply only to workers earning less than $23,660 per year, or $455 per week. The proposed regulation would raise that threshold to extend overtime pay to full-time salaried workers earning less than $50,440 per year, or $970 per week."
