    ...what happened when overtime was introduced during the New Deal.

    Of course, every full time employee would be cut 10 hours per week.  But the demand for workers would increase and wages and salaries would be bid up.  Which would create demand for more jobs and put pressure on actual innovation instead of innovative ways to steal the earnings of workers.

    Plus most folks would get 10 hours more of leisure a week.

    Lordy, what do they teach in economics these days?
