Yes but only given the current circumstance. We are and should accelerate moving from employee/employer model too a contracter model. Benefits, pensions, etc cause corruption and impede the understanding of the employee.

Employee and employer should negotiate expected overtime at the time of salary.

@B4Q588JDemocrat from New York answered…6 days

If you are doing more than you are scheduled whether hourly or salary, all should be paid overtime. It is wage theft and time theft by them cutting my OT out of the hours I worked.

It depends on the situation. But other regulations against businesses should be decreased.

If this positively effects employees to continue to live then it sounds fair but only for those who choose to work overtime hours.

Yes, and the government should do more to protect workers' rights as well as all employees regardless of pay scale should have this

@B35G372Peace and Freedom from Pennsylvania answered…3mos

A combination of the government protecting workers' rights and paying every worker time and a half would be best.

@B2TDNTGVeteran from Kentucky answered…4mos

Yes, and all employees should be paid time-and-a-half for overtime hours regardless of their pay scale, but the businesses should require it, NOT the government.

@B2WVFZVTranshumanist from Mississippi answered…4mos

No, but employees must be paid the minimum livable salary as adjusted by inflation.

@B23XMK5Republican from Illinois answered…5mos

No, as people in salaried positions are under contract and signed that contract with full knowledge that they may be working more than 40 hours a week.

No, the government should not decide what benefits private entities offer employees.

@9GW8N9XWomen’s Equality from Nebraska answered…2yrs

Yes and no. It should be an option if the employee or union have negotiated for it or if the employer voluntarily pays it. Let market value determine compensation.

@9GV9M7XTranshumanist from Illinois answered…2yrs

Could add incentives like tax breaks to encourage companies to do so, but not mandatory

@mtcoffeyDemocrat from Alabama answered…2yrs

No, the company they work for should have to pay time-and-a-half.

It should not be based on your wage but if your paid hourly or salary.

@9YT5WKZDemocrat from Arizona answered…7mos

Yes, but only when they reach a certain amount of hours/minutes. Such as if they work 1 hour overtime, they should be paid. But this only applies to lower paid workers.

@9YFGGF9Democrat from Utah answered…8mos

Yes, but federal government should sponsee this program so it doesn’t negatively impact small businesses.

@9YCM8P5Democrat from Washington answered…8mos

@9Y3XY3PDemocrat from Missouri answered…8mos

Yes, but the dollar amount should vary based on living wages not a set dollar amount for the whole country.

@9XYY66YIndependentfrom Guam  answered…8mos

No, it should not be required but it should be strongly suggested to do. The government should allow companies to decide overtime benefits on its own, but strict guidelines should be drawn to prevent abuse of full-time employees.

@9XY3C56Libertarian from Virginia answered…8mos

Required by law - no. This should be a decision by the business itself. Such benefits may provide an advantage in hiring/retaining talented employees, giving the business a competitive advantage.

@9XR2WH6Independent from Indiana answered…9mos

The government is over regulating business. The employees will decide where the want to go making the business successful or bankrupt

@9WTY4KBDemocrat from Oklahoma answered…10mos

Yes, all employees with an annual salary should have a 40 hour/week cap tied to their agreement (hourly its a given). Anything they choose to accept outside that should be compensated well if businesses want to incentivize longer work hours. Too many companies are getting away with overworking and underpaying their employees through the premise of meeting project completion instead of time dedicated.
