Why is the GOP is going after the Fair Labor Standards Act? We all know that the working poor need a higher minimum wage and their right to overtime pay so that they don’t need to work 55 to 80 hours per week (depending on the state) to stick their heads above the poverty line.

The Fair Labor Standards Act is a 75-year old law, which was conceived under the New Deal to protects workers from abuse by granting them overtime pay, but Eric Cantor and the GOP are re-branding their deregulation efforts as a benefit for the working poor. Huffington Post reports
