How to Make $10 an Hour Without Getting Out of Bed
This morning, the Flakes were discussing the new executive order that mandates overtime pay for hourly employees who work over 40 hours a week.
Paul thinks this will actually hurt workers in the long run because companies will automatically reduce the hours for their employees. And why wouldn't they? You're not 50% more productive on the job when you're working overtime.
It all goes back to the entitlement generation that thinks they deserve to make a living without working for it. Just to put it in perspective for you, Paul did some math. The average unemployment benefit in America is $1600 per month. The average food stamp benefit is $140 per person, per month. If you add it all up, anyone on unemployment and receiving food stamps is making $10.40 for doing nothing.
There's a lot of hard working people who don't make that much money. They'd be better off just staying home and letting the government take care of them.
