U.S. Rep Withdraws Support For Bill On Minor League Wages

U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.), one of two co-sponsors of a bill recently introduced to exempt Minor League Baseball players from federal overtime and minimum wage standards, has withdrawn her support for the legislation in the wake of negative feedback received over the past 24 hours. “Several concerns about the bill have been brought to my attention that have led me to immediately withdraw my support of the legislation,” Bustos said today. “I believe that Major League Baseball can and should pay young, passionate minor league players a fair wage for the work they do.”
