    requested "comp" time is important or legitimate enough to be granted?  And, once the ACTUAL work hours have been put in and the employer has benefited from them, who gets to decide when the wonderful "comp" time hours can be taken?  When the employee wants/needs them?  Or, when the employer decides he can spare the worker?

    Imo, comp time that can't be taken when needed or wanted by the worker is just another crock of horse manure that benefits no one except the employer.  Especially when the basic pay is not a liveable wage to begin with.

      the decision has to be the employee's, within reasonable limits (e.g. giving 24 hours notice). If there are legitimate business reasons why the employee couldn't take the time when they want to, then the employer has to pay them cash (i.e. revert to the current system).

      Sometimes truth is spoken from privilege and falsehood is spoken to power. Good intentions aren't enough.

        also.  However, whenever Repubs are solidly behind any kind of legislation, it usually does not bode well for workers and is designed to be another cash cow for the already wealthy.  

        Sorry I cannot rec your comment.  I do not have TU status.

          Unless there's some specific history that I'm not familiar with, someone around as long as you've been should be able to rec (but not hide).
