2. What types of behaviors are encouraged by companies who do not pay overtime to their white-collar workers? What behaviors are encouraged when companies do pay overtime?
3. Some experts are concerned that if American white-collar workers increase their compensation by demanding and receiving overtime pay, then offshore labor will gain an even larger cost advantage, hurting U.S. companies. Do you agree or disagree?
