Overtime pay or time off - who should choose?

It's those competing needs - and business interests, too - that Congress and President Clinton must balance as they get set to reconsider making comp time, or earned time off, an alternative to overtime pay. The idea, supporters say, is that with a choice between cash and time off, every worker could get what he or she most needs.
