"They were cheated out of overtime and worked off the clock" - so how are these new "rules" going to help? Are they going to change the behavior of employers who skirt the laws to get the maximum amount of work for the minimum pay? Are they going to help the person who reports this behavior, is legally able to keep their job, and then has to work in an environment still controlled by the very person or persons who had their hand slapped?

Sounds like a fairy tale. Works like a nightmare. When are they going to learn that all the regulation in the world doesn't change people's behavior? Education does. Compassion does. Awareness does. Not cranking out a law that doesn't even address the problem in the first place.
