    Back in the 80s at my first job out of college (as an engineer), I was told that the standard work day was 8.5 hours.  An old timer at the company told me that it had originally been 8.5 hours a day M-F, and a half day on Saturday.

    Since engineers are exempt employees, they were able to legally do this.  Eric Cantor's plan just seems like an effort to spread this sort of screw-over to currently non-exempt employees.
