Today, Congressman Xavier Becerra (CA-34), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement after voting against the "More Work, Less Pay" Act (H.R. 140):
"Congress should be fighting every day to strengthen the middle class, not weaken it. We should be putting forward proposals that create jobs and grow our economy, not this misguided "More Work, Less Pay' legislation that would deny working Americans their hard earned overtime pay. Let's work on common sense bipartisan proposals that will put our country back on track instead of putting the brakes on our economic recovery."
