Thanks G. Dubya!  Thanks for looking out for the workers.

Nov. 14, 2003

Even though both houses of Congress responded to your appeals by voting to block President Bush’s overtime pay cuts, the president is refusing to withdraw his pay cuts and says he will
veto final legislation protecting overtime pay. Back-room maneuvering by the Bush administration and House Republican leaders has made it increasingly likely that the overtime pay protections we won will not make it out of Congress this year.
Bush’s Labor Department could put the overtime pay cuts into effect as soon as January.

We still have a final chance to stop President Bush from taking away overtime pay from some 8 million workers if we make our voices heard. As many people as possible need to contact their
senators and U.S. representative and tell them not to come home for the holidays without acting to protect overtime pay. Click below to take action or keep reading for more information.

How did this outrageous betrayal happen? After both the Senate and the House of Representatives passed measures to block President Bush’s overtime pay take-away, a hand-picked committee of members of both of these bodies met behind closed doors to
hammer out differences between the two versions of the overtime pay protections.

House Republican leaders--working with President Bush’s lobbyists--stacked the committee with legislators who support Bush’s overtime pay take-away. So despite congressional votes to block President Bush’s overtime pay take-away, millions of America’s workers are likely to lose it soon.

Please take one minute right now to send a message to your senators and representative by clicking on the link below. Tell them not to come home for the holidays without acting to protect

It is increasingly clear that President Bush will not withdraw his overtime pay take-away. That is why it is so important that as many people as possible get involved before it is too late.
Please don’t forget to spread the word. There are two ways to do this: After you take action, forward this e-mail or part of it to as many people as possible. Or click on the link below to send a message to up to 10 of your friends, family members and
co-workers.

The sweeping changes in America’s work life President Bush is pushing will hurt millions of working families. Paychecks will be smaller. Work hours will be longer. Job quality will be
worse. This is a sad moment in U.S. history--President Bush is taking America back nearly 70 years.

Please take action and then spread the word. Thanks for all you do.
