(WXYZ) — The Labor Department is trying to get more workers eligible for overtime.
Under a new proposal, salaried workers making less than $35,000 a year must be paid time-and-a-half when they put in more than 40 hours a week.
The current threshold of just over 23,000 a year was set back in 2004.
The latest proposal now has to go through a 60-day public comment period.
It's expected to go into effect next January.
