There is currently wide concern over the employment impact of overtime and of the cost of "fringe benefits." The data on overtime worked and the role of fringe costs in employment decisions are examined in this study. The analysis suggests that there is no distinct upward trend in overtime, and that the usual method of supporting the argument that there is a "fringe barrier" to expanded employment is insufficient and in need of refinement. It is concluded, how ever, that the entire system of financing our economic security programs, public as well as private, may need to be reexamined on an integrated basis and with its employment consequences in mind.
