Reform Oregon Overtime

It’s unfair to workers and families to limit overtime hours

OREGON’S OVERTIME LIMITS ARE

UNFAIR TO OREGON WORKERS

In 2017 Oregon lawmakers passed a law that limits the number of overtime hours that manufacturing employees are allowed to work in a week.

Now, we can’t work more than 60 hour per week even if we want to! 

Workers are losing wages because of this new law, which is making it harder to provide for our families now and save money for the future. 

Limits on overtime hours take freedoms away from Oregon workers. Politicians shouldn’t be in the business of telling workers how much they can and cannot work! Or how much they can earn!

This law has only been around for a year, and it needs to be changed. Join the fight to reform Oregon’s overtime law today! 

When the Legislature passed HB 3458 in 2017, the legislation placed a new cap on the amount of hours workers can work in a work week.  The new law made it illegal for workers to work more than 60 hours a week -- even when they want to!  That means employees are losing out on high-paying overtime wages and in some cases, being forced to make up for those lost wages with second jobs.   It doesn't have to be this way.   Lawmakers have the opportunity to fix this broken law and restore worker freedoms by passing overtime reform legislation in the 2019 legislative session.   Workers should get to decide how much overtime they want to work, not politicians!   Join our effort to reform Oregon’s overtime law so that workers can have the freedom to work and earn as much money as they want.
