Anxious about the upcoming implementation of the new overtime rule? The new rule is estimated to affect around 4.2 million workers across all fields. Over the past week, Remodeling and its sister publications reached out to readers from across the construction industry. Dealers, builders, remodelers, manufacturers, and specialty installers all responded and gave us a peek into the preparations, or lack thereof, that some of our readers are taking before the Dec. 1 implementation.

A total of 328 readers responded to the poll over the course of the week, with the majority of responses coming from remodelers and dealers.
