NETWORK strongly supports the Obama administration’s proposed
rule to reform overtime pay for salaried workers. Our position is based on our faith’s teaching
related to the dignity of work and need for the economy to serve all people, not just those at the top. Work is more than a way to make a
living; it is a form of continuing participation in God’s creation. The dignity
of work must be protected by providing workers basic rights, including the
right to decent and fair wages.
