Carrot-Top Industries President Dwight Morris announced the company will uphold the overtime rule that was intended to go into effect December 1, 2016. The new wage rule follows a March 13, 2014 Presidential Memorandum directing the Labor Department to update overtime standards. The proposed statue alters the Fair Labor Standards Acts by raising the threshold of those eligible for overtime from $455 per week ($23,600 annually) to $913 per week ($47,476 annually).
