The more I think about this… it seems at first like, yeah a guy who works 60 hours per week will now get paid time and a half for twenty hours. Sounds good — but the profit margins for farms isn’t there to support that extra expenditure with no additional return.

Likely what it means is that a guy who is now able to legally work 60 hours per week will only be legally allowed to work 40 hours per week and farms will have to hire out a second worker to cover that guy’s 20 missing hours.

So I wonder if the actual net effect of this in the end would be that farm workers end up having a lower potential earning capacity because farms simply won’t ever schedule them for overtime and will thus slash their hours…
