Senators & Reps Consider Repealing 1.5x Pay on Sundays & Holidays

Boston, MA - State Senators and Representatives might be considering changing or eliminating laws which require retail and grocery employers to provide 1.5x pay on Sundays and Holidays.

The current laws in Massachusetts requires all retail and grocery locations to provide their employees with 1.5x pay on Sundays and holidays, like Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Memorial Day. These rules might soon be brought into question, as Senators and Representatives were alledgely discussing repealing or replacing these measures to ease the "burden on small businesses" in the State House on Monday.

In doing so, some Unions prompted their members to call State Senetors & Represenatives to immediately back off of the issue.

Still, others online believed law makers are missing the topic:

"Make it time and a half for any day over five in any given seven day period. Sunday isn't the main problem, it's encouraging businesses to give people a day off (or two)," points out Reddit User Sheol.
