AB 10

Assembly Bill 10 in California proposes to negate the clause that anyone who makes more than $36 an hour or 75,000 annually an exempt employee and subject not overtime.

This is supposedly in response to class-action lawsuit brought about by Suns' writers, but many people feel it adds additional stigma to being a technical writer by removing salaried employee status.

What do you think? Should tech writers earning get overtime or should they get the respect of being a salaried employee?

Edit: Apologies. I misread that they were striking the salary cap clause from existing law.
