Thousands of Central Florida workers now eligible for overtime pay under new regulations.

The White House finalized a rule Wednesday that requires salaried workers that make less than $47,476 to be paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours a week. This more than doubles the old standard. Restaurants, retailers, and hotels will likely be impacted the most.

The rules go into effect Dec. 1, 2016.
