Elaine Chao Goes To The Senate

Nathan Newman blogs about Labor Secretary Elaine Chao's appropriations hearing yesterday to discuss the FY 2006 budget. Hot topics were DOL's sweetheart deal with Wal-Mart and major cuts in DOL's International Labor Affairs Bureau.

Bottom line:
Put these facts together and you have an administration that doesn't care about child labor abroad-- thereby helping to feed cheap manufactured goods to companies like Wal-Mart -- or child labor at home, to help Wal-Mart and other low-wage shops staff their stores.
