Rolling back the FLSA

A few weeks ago I publicly wished Congress would repeal or at least curtail the antediluvian Fair Labor Standards Act, which has served as the basis for countless "overtime" lawsuits on behalf of salaried managers and salespeople. Michael W. Fox (Jottings of an Employer's Lawyer), however, doesn't think that's likely to happen:

In the 30 years I have been doing this, I have yet to see an employment statute rolled back by Congressional action. Given the nature of modern day politics, I don't think that is going to change.
