More Wal-Mart/DOL Shenanigans

Nathan Newman continues to dog the Wal-Mart/Department of Labor sweetheart deal where DOL has promised to warn Wal-Mart before conducting any child labor inspections.

Now Nathan reports that DOL issued a press release about the deal, then retracted it, and re-issued it minus any mention of a kid getting injured operating a chain saw.

Seems that have a deal where Wal-Mart gets to pre-approve DOL press releases.

Jeez, why don't they just move DOL to Bentonville, Arkansas?
