    It would be good even to reduce overtime as a way of creating more jobs.  The reason that the law specified time and one half for over 40 hours a week in most industries was to make it more expensive to work existing workers longer and therefore LESS expensive to hire news employees (keep in mind that health benefits were not common then).
