Better Georgia

Stop the Attack on Overtime Pay

State lawmakers, including former Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens, filed a lawsuit that would block overtime pay for 4.2 million U.S. workers who make between $23,660 and $47,476 per year.

The new, common-sense overtime rule, backed by the U.S. Dept. Labor, would protect middle class and lower-wage workers who often work more than 40 hours per week without any extra pay.

But corporate-backed politicians like former Attorney General Sam Olens have filed an obstructionist lawsuit that would allow companies to continue to take unfair advantage of Georgia workers.

Tell Georgia’s new Attorney General Chris Carr to show voters that he sides with Georgia workers over corporate greed.

Take the Next Step: After you’ve signed the petition, call AG Carr at (404) 656-3300 and let him know that Georgians are watching. Your phone calls are extremely important to elected officials. You could say something like this:

“We request that you remove Georgia from the list of states blocking overtime pay for 4.2 million American workers. Take a stand for working Georgians and their families.”
