For Immediate Release
"Today, we learned that George Bush's Labor Department published its own 'how to' guide for big business to avoid paying workers the overtime pay they've earned.
"When will the Bush Administration devise a 'how to' plan to put people back to work; a 'how to' plan to create jobs; or a "how to" plan to save manufacturing jobs."
"George Bush has made a clear choice. He's chosen to pad profits over letting workers keep the pay they've earned. He's chosen to restrict extra income by restricting overtime. He's taken the side of big corporations over the side of working and out of work Americans.
"It's time we had a President who fought on the side of American workers instead of turning his back on them."
