The Department of Labor is now mandating that most workers making up to $47,000 a year must be paid overtime for anything over 40 hours of work per week. One small business owner in Illinois said that this policy change will do more harm than good for most of his workers. Mike Nobis runs JK Creative Printers & Mailing in Quincy. He said he's going to have to switch his salesmen to hourly rates because they sometimes are on sales calls more than 40 hours a week. “It makes the employer turn out to be the bad guy,” Nobis said.
