Obama enables more thieves to steal from job creators
 
Obama and his assault on job creators and hard working Americans are at no end. Big government came in and forced businesses to more pay to people just because they were working a measly 40 hours a week. What happened to a strong work ethic? Overtime pay pretty much guarantees no business will want to give their employees more work. Some brilliant job creators got around that ridiculous provision by labeling their employees "assistant managers" and "supervisors" without actually giving them any real responsibility. Yet Obama and his communistic thugs are at it again! They want to FORCE our job creators to pay EVERYONE overtime!! Say goodbye to your jobs!

Here is Fox News exposing Obama's plots yet again.




I am sure some liberals out there are thinking that this is somehow going to "help" the economy, but Fox News brilliantly shut down that point with a simple "No". Fox News is an authoritative news source, and they do not need to overwhelm their viewers with boring technical reasons about why it wouldn't help the economy. All they need to know is that Fox News said it wouldn't. Good enough for me!

Another horrible thing about this is that it is basically bribing poor people to vote for more Demoncrats. The only people politicians should give favors to are people wealthy enough to tithe. Obama doing favors for the poor people? Simply sickening! Absolutely appalling!

You just can't put a Marxist community organizer in charge of a 17 trillion dollar economy. Jesus certainly had something to say about this in the Bible (KJV1611) Matthew 20:1–16. Economists might show Obama this simplified chart, but I doubt that Obama ever took a course in economics - much less read Matthew in that church he attended for 20 years.

The great thing about FOX News is they don't bother me with the details I don't need to know. Does what Obummer is doing help the economy? No. I don't really care why. The reason is probably very complicated, like the reason that greater access to guns causes less killing and keeps me more safe. How does that work? Don't care. I just need to know it does.

Obummer, The Commander in Thief, has once again shown his ignorance of basic, fundamental economics. At least a few hard-working, REAL Americans like Fox host Stuart Varney can see through Obummer's web of lies and hate.

I guess it's easier for thugs like Obummer to lead his horde of lazy rabble by dangling a goodie bag of Big Government handouts in front of them than reading an Economics 101 book or allowing job creators the FREEDOM™ and LIBERTY® and essential loopholes they need to lead us out of this disastrous Obamaconomy.

Sad, so sad, how this country has nosedived ever since January 20, 2009, when America was free… the beacon to the World… with a roaring economy, the World's Greatest Healthcare System©, and an upbeat, can-do spirit. So, so terribly sad....

So let me get this straight: liberals support overtime pay? As in, they think people should be paid more for working more?

That's the purest definition of COMMUNISM!:angry:

Well, we just think of a way how to compensate on the hard working employees. Thus, they have over-time pay which they deserve.

By "we" you mean your big government loving liberal pals? :angry:

Businesses are fully capable of deciding on their own pay with employees without big government thugs intervening and FORCING them to pay more. What if an employee's work is only worth $14 an hour and their base wage is $10 an hour? The employers will be FORCED to lower their wages to $9 an hour in order to prevent losses. If they are forced to lower the wages to an amount that is lower than minimum wage, pretty soon the job becomes more trouble than it's worth. You'd have employees taking advantage of this "overtime" loophole to work 120 hours in one week and then take time off the next two weeks in order to get paid 50% more for the same amount of work.


What about employers who prevent their employees from working more than 40 hours a week, thus triggering the overtime pay? Well, now that is just another job killed by the Obama administration! An employee would have worked 45 hours to make money for his family, but thanks to Obama that employee is now locked to a strict 40 hours a week, unable to provide more!

Anyone who thinks their work suddenly becomes 50% more valuable after the 40 can already sign a specific contract with their employer stating as such. Maybe one employee would want to ask for overtime pay but another wouldn't, giving that other employee preferential treatment in the hiring process. But I guess that is too much freedom and not enough big government intervention for liberals:thumbdown:. God forbid we should have more jobs if it means liberals don't get a warm fuzzy feeling in their heart about "helping" the lower class when they're actually hurting them.

If anything, due to fatigue work probably becomes LESS valuable after 40 hours, so workers should be paid at a lower rate, but you don't Republicans arguing that we should have a government mandate to have everyone paid less after an arbitrary point. Why? Because Republicans believe in freedom, and they believe that people are adults and are capable of negotiating agreements with businesses on their own without big government regulations giving them "help" that they didn't want and didn't ask for.

Overtime pay is simply devastating to the lower and middle class that need every hour of work they can get. This recession would have been over years ago, and it probably never would have started to begin with if we got rid of big government interventionists policies eg. Minimum wage laws, anti-trust laws, overtime laws, corporate tax, business license requirements, child labor laws.
