That is SO last week

Last week, 21 states filed a lawsuit challenging the Department of Labor’s new overtime rules. Within hours, another suit was filed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and business groups. The lawsuits contend that the Department of Labor exceeded its authority and violated the Tenth Amendment by issuing the rules. The new rules, which are scheduled to take effect December 1, 2016, will require employers to pay overtime to workers earning less than $47,476 a year, which is double the current threshold of $23,660.
