The @USDOL is planning to issue a proposal where salaried employees working more than 40 hours a week will receive overtime pay.

According to Penn State Professor of Practice, Antone Aboud (School of Labor and Employment Relations), "The growing number of exempt salaried employees over the years has encouraged employers to force these workers to absorb increasing responsibilities, some of which follow them to their lunch hours, to their homes, even to their vacations. Much of the unpaid overtime is a function of technology that allows an employer to extend the workday beyond official hours (e.g., responding to e-mails). This change in how the law is applied will incentivize employers to create less oppressive work environments, with greater work/life balance."

What are your thoughts if this proposal is passed?

While we encourage you to take courses online, that might not be the best place to look for help diagnosing your own medical conditions. A recent survey found that online symptom checkers showed incorrect results more than half the time. Much wiser to consult with a real-life medical professional! http://ow.ly/QctpY
For many of us, that first sign of a cough means going right to Google to type in the symptoms and see if you're dying — or if you just have a cold.
