Looks like some of the dumb assed white bigots who voted for the Chumph are going to get their just reward…Right in the pocketbook.
Polling firm CEO: ’20 million Trump voters’ will lose time and half overtime pay under GOP plan
Millions of Americans who voted for Donald Trump are expected to lose overtime pay rights soon after he is sworn in as president.
Tom Bonier, CEO of the polling firm Targetsmart, pointed out on Monday that “almost 20,000,000 Trump voters would lose time and a half overtime” under a Republican plan to reverse regulations put in place by President Barack Obama.
Trump/GOP members of Congress can’t wait to rob working Americans. Is this what they voted for? http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/house-republicans-donald-trump-231636 … pic.twitter.com/OVLGWp1nXq
Based on exit polls, almost 20,000,000 Trump voters would lose time and a half overtime under this change. #MakeAmericaBrokeAgain pic.twitter.com/LRnl22tJh7
According to Politico, House Republicans are already plotting the most efficient way to dismantle Obama-era regulations. An overtime rule requiring companies to pay time-and-a-half to workers who make less than $47,000 a year is expected to be one of the first reversals.
“We have heard over the past year that it would have truly dramatically bad effects, not just on employers but on employees across the country,” Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL) told Politico. “I can give you the names of a ton of private-sector businesses who will either have to eat that cost or pass that cost on to their customers.”
Exit polls taken during the Nov. 8 election showed that 41 percent of Trump’s 61 million votes were cast by people who make less than $50,000 a year.

Breaking news: Trump’s DOJ won’t pursue charges against Hillary because she’s been through enough.
Trump’s supporters have been conned again.

Yeah, they should get used to that feeling.

True but I have been reading comments trying to spin it.
It’s going to be a disappointing four years for the Trump Trolls especially those in those Rust Belt states who believe that those middle class paying jobs are coming back after the American based companies are given tax amnesty to repatriate their earnings from past years.

We have an issue that is a bit closer to home. The Chumph’s attack on the US Government labor force. I will get into why that matters in another post.

Remember, Obama did not prosecute any of the Bushit administration for their crimes.
Obama explained (albeit very nicely) what would happen the the Chumph if he crossed that line. And it ain’t pretty.
The Chumph could be facing dozens, if not near a few hundred lawsuits across the country from his illegitimate business actions.
The Chumph could be facing criminal prosecution from misuse and theft of his “charity” funds by both the IRS and State Governments.
The Chumph could be facing criminal prosecution for fraud for his Trump University, Casino, and Water (among other scams).
The Chump might be looking at RICO Prosecution for his relationships with the Mafia, particularly in NYC and Atlantic City. Not to mention the possibility of :funny money” and money laundering in his foreign business.
The Chumph could be facing criminal prosecution for his illegal dealings and financial relationship with Putin and the Russian Government during the election.
The Chumph could be in a political shitstorm by Obama releasing the information that the votes were manipulated, probably with the help of the Russians…And he really didn’t win the election. Followed of course by prosecution.
Obama told the Chumph to STFD and STFU.
End of story.
