In a Congressional hearing Thursday, Republican lawmakers indicated a willingness to reform the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the bedrock Depression-era statute that established a minimum wage and time-and-a-half overtime for American workers.

Although he proffered no prescription for reform, Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.), who chairs the House education and workforce committee, called the hearing to explore whether the fair labor law is "meeting the needs of the 21st century." Invited to testify by the Republican majority were two business executives and a lawyer who said the statute has become too onerous for contemporary employers, leading to an explosion of costly lawsuits brought by workers.

Wow looks like these traitors want to remove ALL protections for workers. That is sick. No minimum wage, no protection for being forced to work 14-16 hour days....

This is totally bogus. The Republicans under Schwarzenegger already swindled California workers like this, so now employers can force us to work four 10-hour days instead of the normal five days of 8 hours.

And they did this by creating an astroturf group (phony grassroots) claiming they wanted the "flexibility".

But this is an attack on the very basics of workers' rights.

So be it, then. Now we see their true colors. Now the gloves are off.
