The biggest news last week caused a ruckus among employers and employees in and outside the food industry: President Obama effectively gave millions of foodservice employees a hefty raise by setting new overtime rules in place. Soon, all salaried employees who earn less than $47k annually will be eligible for overtime, or time-and-a-half pay. Last week also saw a massive craft brewery collaboration, some Beyhive drama, the world's longest pizza, and so much more.
