Tribes blast new Department of Labor rule affecting overtime pay


The Obama administration has finalized new overtime pay standards that tribes say will hurt their enterprises and force them to take resources away from critical programs.

The rule goes into effect on December 1, giving employers more than six months to prepare for changes that will boost overtime wages for millions of workers.
