Mollohan, D-W.Va., voted Thursday to protect the federal law that guarantees over- time pay for U.S workers. "In West Virginia and all across the country, workers put in extra hours to get the job done for their employers, and they rightfully receive time-and- a-hal f pay for their overti me efforts," Moilohan said. "However, millions of employees would lose this crucial right under a rule change that has been proposed by the Bush Administration. The cuts in pay would be devastating to many of these workers, who count on the e xtra money to feed, clothe and house their families," he said. The Bush proposal, announced in March by the U.S. Labor Department, would change the criteria that is used to determine which employees quail fy for overtime. More than eight million workers now receiving overtime would lose their extra pay under the proposal, according to analysis by the Economic Policy Institute. "A broad range of employees-in- cluding many nurses, police officers, fire fighters, surveyors, office and sup- port workers, secretaries and para- medics-are considered likely to lose their eligibility for overtime if the Labor Department moves forward with this proposal," Mollohan said. An amendment offered Thursday on the House floor would have pre- vented the Labor Department from spending money to is,ue or enforce regulations that take overtime pay away from anyone who is currently eligible for it. The amendment would not have bk~=ked the part of the Bush proposal that would make some addb tional workers eligible for overtime. Mollohan supported the amend- ment, which was offered as the H ouse considered the Labor Department's 2004 spending bill. The amendment failed by a vote of 210 to 213. * XLT PACKAGE POWER SEAT * LOCAL OWNER APR TERM. 0 I)OWN TAXES AND ON APPROVED CREDIT.
