Sen. McCaskill Urged to Support S. 2707

On April 14, the St. Louis Chapter of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America sent a letter to Senator McCaskill (D-MO) expressing deep concern with the Labor Department’s Overtime proposal.

The non-profit which serves the greater St. Louis area and provides children with asthma and allergies life-saving medications, equipment, and support expects the Overtime rule changes to devastate their budget and harm their ability to provide  essential services to their community.

As such, the chapter urges Senator McCaskill to support S. 2707, the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act which will block the rule and require the Department of Labor  to first conduct a comprehensive economic analysis on the impact of mandatory overtime expansion to small businesses, nonprofits, and public employers before issuing a similar rule.
