Congress Is Back In Session - Harkin Amendment Fight is Gearing Up

The Bush Administration's efforts to bring the regulations for white collar exemptions into the modern world would be halted by the Harkin amendment offered by Iowa Senator Tom Harkin. (Any guess how the Presidential Candidate/Senators will vote on this one?) This will be a real battle as both sides look to be inclined to pull out all stops. Organized labor is quick off the mark running advertising in three states with Senators who it thinks would be persuadable, Maine, Missouri and Ohio, and also nationally on CNN. Yahoo News has the story, as well as a link to the new website for those supporting the Harkin amendment, www.saveovertimepay.com. If you just can't wait to see the ad, you can catch a version on the website.
