Working overtime to mislead



The AFL-CIO has put up a quiz which supposedly tells if you're at risk of losing your entitlement to overtime pay under the recent Bush Administration revisions to New Deal-era labor regulations. According to contributors and commenters at George Lenard's employment blog, however, you can't trust the results of the quiz.
