Working Late? Don't Expect to Get Paid

The Cheap-Labor Conservatives in the Bush administration have been attacking workers' rights for years, including the right to time-and-a-half overtime for hours exceeding 40 per week. Today, the new policy goes into effect. See? The Republicans don't really want to export American jobs to China. They want to import Chinese wages and working conditions here.

Since this will probably lower the taxable income of many Americans substantially, don't be surprised to see Bush claiming it as another tax cut.
