As we reported to you last week, DDIFO was one of over a dozen different independent franchisee associations to sign on to the International Franchise Association comments in opposition to the new overtime threshold.  The Obama administration has essentially doubled the previous amount of salary below which an employee must be given overtime compensation.  In 2004, the amount was increased to $455 per week, but it has now been increased again to $970!  The full text of the comments submitted to the Department of Labor by the IFA can be accessed here.
