Tuesday on The Chad Hasty Show, Lubbock Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President Norma Ritz Johnson joined Hasty in the KFYO studio to talk about the organization's lawsuit being filed against the federal government's new rules affecting overtime.

This is one of five lawsuits the Lubbock Chamber is filing against federal over-regulation. The government's new overtime rules will take effect on December 01, 2016, which allows businesses only about 150 days to comply with the new regulations, which are extensive. The Chamber is requesting an injunction against the new regulations.

Ritz Johnson said, "It will be a much more rigorous form of time keeping and record keeping that the employee and the employer are going to be faced with." She then continued, speaking about the urgent nature of the matter, saying,

This is going to be a whole new world, and basically change the American workplace and places like Lubbock where a $47,500 salary is not an unusual salary for a white collar professional.
