In a 5-4 decision the Supreme Court has ruled that pharmaceutical sales reps are not entitled to overtime pay because their job is to … sell drugs.
Yes folks, it took our nation’s highest court to decide that the job of a rep is “not merely to make physicians aware of the medically appropriate uses of a particular drug. Rather, it was to convince physicians actually to prescribe the drug in appropriate cases.”
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
The obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer.
