The Thirty-Two Hour Workweek Act would amend the definition of the workweek in the federal Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. It would require overtime pay at a rate of time and half for any employee who works more than 32 hours in one week.
It becomes cheaper for a business to hire more people than pay an individual for 40 hours of labor. Which, inneffect, would reduce an hourly worker’s pay by 20%. Would likely not impact a salaried worker’s pay as employers are not legally required to pay overtime for salaried emoloyees.
