From Noam Scheiber, at The New York Times:
This reminds me of a Simpsons quote where-in Homer gets a job as a greeter at the newly opened Sprawl-Mart.
President Obama announced Monday night a rule change that would make millions more Americans eligible for overtime pay.
The rule would raise the salary threshold below which workers automatically qualify for time-and-a-half overtime wages to $50,440 a year from $23,660…
Perhaps even funnier is that I came across this little gem while searching for the above quote.
Homer, would you be interested in the position of executive greeter?
That’s been my dream ever since I heard it existed right now. What do I get?
You get to work overtime without us paying you extra.
Employment benefits and competitive salary options await qualified Walmart greeters.
