Notice of Proposed Rulemaking: Overtime
The Department of Labor has announced a proposed rule that would extend overtime protections to nearly 5 million white collar workers within the first year of its implementation. Failure to update the overtime regulations has left an exception to overtime eligibility originally meant for highly-compensated executive, administrative, and professional employees now applying to workers earning as little as $23,660 a year. This proposed regulation is a critical first step toward ensuring that hard-working Americans are compensated fairly and have a chance to get ahead.

State of Montana Labor Day Report: A Summary
On Labor Day 2015, Montana’s workers and businesses are enjoying higher wages, strong output growth, and an ideal unemployment situation. With the rest of the nation finally catching up to Montana’s performance, consumers and businesses are gaining confidence that our economy is resilient enough to absorb global financial shocks. The U.S. and Montana economies are once again leading the world in economic strength and maintaining stability for developed and emerging economies alike.
