Overtime Moratorium

Prohibit any non-emergency worker from working more than an 8-hour day or a 40-hour work week whenever unemployment is above 5%.

Why is this important?

In recent decades business has chipped away at worker's rights. Among these are the 8-hour day and the 40-hour work week. Restrictions on how much overtime a person may work will cause businesses to hire once again.

Eliminating overtime will not only generate jobs, it will restore work/life balance that has been whittled away, bit-by-bit, over recent years.
