GOP, Farmers Looking Beyond OT Tax Credit, Focus on Holding Threshold | New

NOVA SCOTIA (TNS) – Top Republican state and federal officials oppose a hefty subsidy for farm owners to help cover overtime costs for their workers, saying the answer is instead to avoid lowering the overtime threshold.

“It’s not about changing it at 40 and trying to put band-aids on it,” said U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin, a Long Island Republican and GOP gubernatorial candidate, during a press conference Monday at Stanton’s Feura Farm, a family business. business in southern Albany County. “We are here today to stand up to do the right thing, not to partially, temporarily fix the wrong thing if this continues. It is not too late for the state to act to defend its farms.”
