Engage PEO's President, Midge Seltzer, speaks to the Associated Press on the impact of the DOL's new rules on overtime pay for white collar workers.

"Most of the workplace consists of conscientious employees. It's going to be difficult for them to just throw their hands up and say, 'I'm done,'" she says.
