|Has Scalia, who has since left the post, or President Bush ever held a job that involved physical labor?|
One of this administration's first actions was to repeal the ergonomic regulations that prevent repetitive stress. Two years later, the administration solved the entire problem with characteristic brilliance: It revoked the provision requiring employers to report such injuries! This was almost as good as the time that the administration solved global warming by simply editing it out of an environmental report....A new House bill would reduce penalties and weaken OSHA's enforcement powers to correct safety and health standards. About 6 million American workers are injured on the job every year, and more die in workplace accidents annually than were killed during the Sept. 11 attacks. Ha-ha-ha, how funny -- let's just have companies stop reporting these things.
