With this petition, I hope to force North Carolina government officials to reform laws surrounding overtime pay and what constitutes working overtime. 
It is beyond time for North Carolinians to fight for their rights as a workforce. It’s bad enough we haven’t raised the minimum wage in over a decade, but continuing to allow companies to skirt overtime laws by stretching the work week across two pay weeks completely obliterates the purpose of the laws to start with. 
North Carolinians need more time with their families or for self care. Overtime laws force employers to either grant that, or pay a premium for forcing workers to spend more time at work than they do working on the relationships that create a good foundation for a well rounded, mentally healthy lifestyle. Having parents at home more will make things easier for schools, it will help keep kids off the streets, or if they have to work this change will help people afford better tools to care for dependents.

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION. IT MAY CHANGE LIVES!
