Placeholder Image
Gainesville and Hall County salaried workers are some out of more than 4 million Americans who soon will qualify for overtime pay under a new set of rules. Georgia accounts for 157,605 workers, or 3.7 percent of the national workers affected according to the Department of Labor’s White House fact sheet. When the changes go into effect Dec. 1, any workers who make less than $47,500 annually can’t be denied overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours a week.
