On Wednesday, President Barack Obama and Labor Secretary Tom Perez, who’s considered to be a possible pick for the Democratic vice presidency, announced new rules that could result in as many as 2 million Latinos getting overtime pay.

Are you a salaried worker? Do you make less than $47,476 a year?

If you work more than 40 hours a week and make less than the aforementioned amount, you qualify for overtime.

Your boss will be legally obligated to pay you time and a half for any extra hours you work. Previously, the only salaried people who could claim overtime were those making $23,660.

That’s according to the Economic Policy Institute. The new regulations will also benefit as many as 6.4 million women and 4.5 million millennials.

This means that more Latinos will be like this when the direct deposit hits:

What’s that, player? You’re a manager who’s asked to stay after work to take care of the expense reports? Better grab an umbrella because you’re about to make it rain.

Your boss told you that you needed to come in on Saturday? Might as well call you Dunder Mifflin because you’ll be making that paper.

The new rules will go into effect December 1.

Trump Bullied This Beauty Pageant Winner By Calling Her ‘Miss Housekeeping’ Because She Had Accent

After winning the Miss Universe crown in 1996, Alicia Machado says Donald Trump called her “Miss Piggy” and demanded her to lose weight.

To Machado’s misfortune, Donald Trump had just taken over the Miss Universe organization right after she won the crown. That same year, she started gaining a significant amount of weight.

“She weighed 118 pounds or 117 pounds and she went to 160 or 170. So this is somebody that likes to eat,” Trump said publicly. Because we know he can’t keep his misogynistic thoughts to himself.

Last time we checked, that’s true for any human being. The whole weight-gain controversy turned into a spectacle to the point where Trump had Machado work out in front of media to prove that she was working on losing the weight ASAP. She says all of his verbal abuse led her to become severely depressed and battle with eating disorders for years.

Oh, and he also called her “Miss Housekeeping” – because of her accent.
