    Look, I agree with your sentiment, but I disagree - most employers will use this against employees.

    I worked for an accounting firm back when it had time and a half for associates below Manager.  You "banked" your overtime hours (at time and a half) up to 200 hours, and then you got paid for it thereafter.  In theory, you could keep the bank and get it paid out at the end of the year.  In practice, those who did so found themselves on crappy assignments, delayed promotions, etc. - nothing actionable, but the message was clear.  

    This would be more the norm under this proposed law.

    Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear. ~William E. Gladstone, 1866
