Sherrod Brown Pushes Trump Administration On Overtime Pay

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) is proposing a bill that would require overtime pay for any salaried worker making less than $51,064, a more than $15,000 increase to the Trump Administration's proposed threshold.

The current overtime salary threshold is set at $23,660, Brown says his plan would make overtime pay available for more than 4.6 million more workers.

President Donald Trump has his own proposal to increase to the threshold to $35,303 a year.

Brown says that plan is a "betrayal to American workers" and sees this as an important issue in the 2020 presidential race.

1. I was hoping Sherrod Brown would throw in for President. Oh, well, plenty of other talent.

2. There are a few candidates that would benefit from having Brown as a running mate,

particularly Harris and O'Rourke. The one issue that develops having Brown as a running mate or in the cabinet is that his replacement would be named by Gov. DeWine who would almost certainly pick a Republican.

3. Then DeWine would choose another Republican for the Senate.

That may be one reason Brown dropped out. The guy is seriously devoted to Ohio.

He knocked DeWine out of the Senate. I wish he would run for Governor.
