Kansas is one of 21 states suing the U.S. Department of Labor over a new rule regarding overtime pay.
If the rule stands, close to 4 million additional workers in the U.S. would be eligible for extra compensation when they work more than 40 hours a week. That's because the Department of Labor ordered a change that effectively doubles the wage threshold at which a worker can be deemed "exempt" from overtime pay.
All workers who make less than $47,476 a year will be eligible. The rule includes government employees.
