    I don't know what level of critical thinking happens around here, but a proposal whereby you convert paid overtime hours into unpaid leave is laughable on its face.

    The real proposal is one that turns paid overtime into paid leave.

      That's why I'm willing to believe they'd want to make it unpaid time off.  They worship Mammon and would do anything to avoid giving out any of their money if at all possible.

        I don't think anyone is proposing swapping time and a half for unpaid leave.

        •  I agree. Let's see what they're actuall willing (0+ / 0-)

          to commit to paper.  They resist putting their various budget cuts to so-called "entitlements" on paper because of the blowback.  Salary is another "entitlement" to these investors.
