The last viral video I saw about wages, was Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda touting their own ignorance about how waitstaff are paid. Two days ago, another comedian, Trae Crowder, posted a video claiming that very few people receive overtime pay in the US because evil companies can simply change your title.
Crowder, obviously, doesn’t have the same name recognition as Tomlin and Fonda, but he has been able to get almost 15,000 shares of his video in 36 hours. So, I thought I better set the record straight before it lands on your feed
“Now the way US overtime laws are written, all your boss has to do is check off a few simple boxes and now you’re exempt from getting paid fairly. For example, do you make more than $23,660 a year? If so the Federal government says you don’t need overtime.”
