This seems like step 1 to get rid of overtime. I thought the conservatives wanted to strengthen the middle class. By allowing this "choice", more workers will be pressured into taking comp time, which they will likely only get to use if their work is completely done. That usually translates into rarely getting to use it. Look at companies that allow unlimited vacation. Most workers take less than those who get a fixed amount. I see this only shrinking the middle class and allowing corporations even more power and money.
