Save Overtime Pay  
"The Bush administration's cuts in overtime pay and changes in the rules that are the foundation of the 40-hour workweek and the weekend will soon become law,
unless the U.S. Senate blocks them. More than 8 million workers could lose their overtime pay and protections under these changes.

The AFL-CIO has setup a webpage that allows anyone, union members and nonmembers, to send faxes to their U.S. senators about this outrageous change. Overtime work should be compensated with overtime pay. Working families depend on it. Please click on the link to fax your U.S. senators and urge them not to take away overtime pay from any worker."
