    If you work on a golf course, you know that a 7 day a week work schedule through the summer is standard. These new overtime rules will benefit anyone making a SALARY of $47,000 or less. This is really going to help Assistants. Those guys have been getting screwed over for decades. I'm sure most places will give paid time off in the winter instead of increasing the weekly payroll. But still, that's progress and even though it's 15 years too late for me, i'm glad to see it.

    It's for over 40 hours a week...giving winter time off won't help..they are going to have to pay up weekly or find enough guys to keep hours low (Good Luck with that)
