U.S. Rushes to Change Workplace Toxin Rules,
Political appointees at the Department of Labor are moving with unusual speed to push through in the final months of the Bush administration a rule making it tougher to regulate workers’ on-the-job exposure to chemicals and toxins.
The agency did not disclose the proposal, as required, in public notices of regulatory plans that it filed in December and May.
Republicans making it harder for workers to protect themselves from exposure to toxins. They get paid a bundle of cash to help kill people. What a job. With the added bonus of doing it in ways that make it harder for legitimate government to fix it so people can again be protected.
And then, when they leave the government, they will be hired by the very companies that make a bundle from poisoning workers, and paid then for what they are doing now. A flat-out bribe that comes a year later.
You try to explain to people what is happening, and they think YOU are extreme. It does sound so extreme to say that people would do this. Yet there they are — doing it.
