Are You Getting Screwed Out Of Overtime Pay?

Attention people who have jobs: You may be getting screwed out of overtime pay. You’d better bet that Chuck Norris doesn’t put up with not getting paid his overtime pay. Bankrate has a simple questionnaire that helps you determine if you are eligible for overtime pay:

Do you qualify for overtime?
•Do you get paid by the hour?
•Do you make a salary that goes down if you miss work?
•Is your weekly salary consistent, but less than $455 a week?

If you said yes to any of these questions, you should educate yourself about the laws concerning overtime pay. Bankrate’s article is good, it goes into all the exceptions and explains them. If you think you’re getting screwed out of overtime, check it out. Maybe you are! Employers make mistakes, just ask people who work at Walmart. —MEGHANN MARCO
