Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) warns workers that they may not get paid for the extra hour from daylight savings if they aren’t careful.
Did you work the late shift on the morning of November 3rd? You may be entitled to the wages for working that extra hour. AOC alerted her Twitter followers on Sunday to the possible wage loss.
The Daylight Savings Scam
The majority of the country sets their clocks an hour back this time of year to end Daylight Savings Time. If you worked a late shift overnight, you likely worked an extra hour because of this. You are entitled to this money whether your employer willingly pays you or not.
“Make sure you check your pay stub this week and get paid for it!” AOC tweeted. “Computers sometimes miss it.”
Employees who worked on Sunday night from 1:00 am to 2:00 am, actually worked that hour twice as a result of the time change. Officially, clocks are to be turned back at that time. If you worked at that time, make sure you get paid for it.
