House Says ?No? to Bush Overtime Pay Attack
AFL-CIO


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'Both houses of Congress have now spoken -? and they have directed President Bush not to take away overtime pay from working families.'

-- AFL-CIO President John J. Sweeney
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The House of Representatives dealt the Bush administration a stinging rebuke by approving a measure that could lead to defeat of President George W. Bush?s proposal to take away overtime pay protections from as many as 8 million workers. President Bush will now have to decide whether to withdraw the parts of his proposal that would take away overtime protection or to defy the wishes of both houses of Congress and insist on his right to take away overtime protection.

The 221-203 vote is the second congressional setback in a little more than three weeks for Bush?s plan to gut Fair Labor Standards Act protections for workers? overtime pay. The Senate voted Sept. 10 to forbid the U.S. Department of Labor from implementing Bush?s attack on working families? paychecks as part of fiscal year 2004 Labor, Health and Human Services and Education appropriations bill (H.R. 2660). The House passed its version of the bill in July but did not include the prohibition.
