Home care workers denied overtime

Even though I'm busy sunning and golfing and relaxing, the blog never rests. The front page of the business section of the Hilton Head Island Packet caught my eye.

The Supreme Court yesterday upheld the right of the Department of Labor to exclude home care workers from overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act. While this case has a narrow impact, I'm sure it's a huge relief to employers of home health workers, who could have been economically crippled if the decision went the other way.
