    a policy that would allow workers to convert overtime compensation into time off. “I gave a talk today about helping people and about finally focussing on legislation that has understandable benefits right away,”
    Mandate short-term thinking!  It's the republican way!  Tempt workers too tired (or too dumb) to think clearly, and make them think this works for them (which it almost does, in the short term), instead of against them (which it definitely does in the long term).  Trade immediate days off (potentially) for lack of stability and fairness.

    Harrumph.

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
