And When Will They Open Baghdad OSHA?

rawblogXport reports that Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao is in Baghdad to inaugurate the grand opening of Baghdad Employment and Training Center....
The new facilities, the classrooms and the computer lab will help Iraqis gain marketable job skills and access new opportunities for lifelong learning," said Secretary Elaine L. Chao. "The Iraqi Ministry staff is proceeding to set up employment and training centers all over the country. Increasing employment is a key element to stabilizing democracy in Iraq. Already, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have been registered for jobs and training and more than 25,000 Iraqis have found new jobs from the efforts of this Ministry."
