If you love your job, and work more than the required 40 hours, you might end up making something closer to minimum wage (or, lower) when overtime hours aren't required to be clocked or paid for.
What do you think about this change? Overall, I think it's a good proposition, but I worry about how it would affect those who are currently considered salaried but end up being considered hourly workers after the change. Their morale and benefits may suffer: salaried workers often have the ability to take off time midday for appointments, or to schedule themselves a bit more freely. If they are considered hourly workers, management of their time may become more strict, preventing them from using this time and forcing them to take vacation hours instead.
What are you thoughts?
