Representing the 2nd District of South Carolina

Wilson on Department of Labor's Overtime Rule

Jun 6, 2016
Press Release

“The Administration’s decision to finalize the overtime rule is yet another regulatory blow that destroys jobs. This mandate especially hurts students, non-profits, and people starting a new career.  This top-down, burdensome regulation will limit job creation, eliminate workplace flexibility, and penalize businesses, hurting hardworking Americans.

“Businesses should be responsible for managing their own employees, not the federal government.”

Congressman Wilson is a co-sponsor of H.R. 4773, the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act, which would negate the Administration’s Overtime Rule. He will also attend a hearing in the House Committee on Education and the Workforce on Thursday titled: “The Administration’s Overtime Rule and Its Consequences for Workers, Students, Nonprofits, and Small Businesses”
