Republicans want to give employees who work more than 40 hours a week the option of taking paid time off instead of overtime pay; the option already exists in the public sector. The legislation is part of a broader Republican agenda undertaken by House Majority Leader Cantor to expand the party's political appeal to working families. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)
