PRI's The World: 07/02/2015 Business leaders hate it; organized labor loves it. We're talking about President Obama's plan to make more workers eligible for overtime pay.

The choir's music director speaks about their sell-out performance in Istanbul, where they also witnessed police break up a gay pride march with water cannons and rubber bullets.
