Fox News Says Overtime Pay Is Harmful To The American 'Work Ethic'

Has anybody at Fox News actually had a job that real middle class Americans do? Because if you want to be paid for overtime, now you're a moocher destroying the American dream.

Fox News is now spinning workers being paid for overtime into a new souffle of conservative silliness. If you don't show up early and work late to show your boss how dedicated you are, then you're lazy moochers with a "punch in," "punch out" mentality that's destroying the American work ethic.

Do they even know what a "work ethic" is?

Roger Ailes is a soulless demon who preys on the working class family.

Fox News is once again pining for the days when more work came with less pay, claiming that expanding overtime pay protections "undercuts work ethic."

The knee-jerk reaction that amending existing policy to help workers is somehow harmful to the American work ethic is a common theme at the network, and has been brought up to undermine the minimum wage, disparage the Affordable Care Act, and demonize vital assistance programs.

Watch Fox hearken back to a bygone era when worker protections weren't impeding the American Dream

Have Conservatives making these insane claims ever worked a job before in like a coffee shop, laundromat, clothing warehouse, supermarket, drug store, etc?
