So let's see, we had the Iowa caucuses yesterday, and we've got the State of the Union today. If you were the administration and you wanted to do something you know people won't like, this would be a good time to do it, don't you think?
Interesting, then, that today may be the day the Senate votes on a budget bill that includes a provision making it easier for employers to reclassify employees as "exempt" so that they will not have to pay overtime.
You know what they say: If you like a forty hour work week, thank a union. In 2004, we can add: If you lose your forty hour work week, thank union busters.
