The president recently announced new overtime regulations that will take effect on December 1.

Under the new ruling, the salary threshold of those eligible for overtime will increase.

The Labor Department says it will boost the incomes of 4.2 million workers. But some companies say they can’t afford to pay overtime to all of the newly-eligible employees.
