But I'm just being devils advocate....not stumping for such behavior.

I worked at a company that lost a lawsuit filed by former and current entry level employees who were "exempt" but were not bonus eligible and who were consistently coerced into working ridiculous overtime hours.
This company is about as greedy/cheap as could be when it came to nickel and diming employees. I have never worked with worse.
In the immeidate aftermath of losing the lawsuit, they made the entry level position non-exempt. All OT had to be approved. So the people who had the job worked less hours for the same pay and at times got a bit of OT pay.
About six years later, they eliminated the position in the US and offshored the job to India completely - However, that process had been in the works since before they lost the lawsuit. By the time they made the announcement, they only had to lay off a few people.
Shortly after that, they realized that they still needed a pipeline of Americans for higher level roles so they created a new, higher paid position for entry level Americans (management training type position). In my former office, they have way more people in this new role now than had lost their jobs when the other position was sent overseas. Not sure if that is true nationally though.
