Montana Labor, Non-Profit Groups React to New Federal Overtime Rule

Montana Labor, Non-Profit Groups React to New Federal Overtime Rule

Printer-friendly version

Starting December 1, most salaried workers earning about $47,500 or less a year will get time-and-a-half pay when they put in over 40 hours a week. That’s more than double the existing overtime cutoff.

Helena’s Liz Moore says the rule should be easy to rally behind.

"On the one hand we’re supportive from the social justice, moral perspective, but from the perspective of how do we actually do this, it’s pretty worrisome."

Moore is the executive director of the Montana Nonprofit Association.

Opponents say some workers could earn more money under the new rule, but add others could see reduced hours and flexibility.
