  •  They've wanted to kill these regs (6+ / 0-)

    THey've wanted to kill these regs for a long time.  The Labor sec under Bush the (even) Lesser tried to rewrite these rules.

    Shit, imagine what it would be like to work at Taco Bell.  

    "Hey, we need you to work 80 hours this week, but we'll give you next week off to compensate."

    "Well, gosh.  I was hoping to see my kids this week."  

    " Oh, don't worry a bout that.  Your kids can come and work, too.  We're working on restricting the child employment laws, too!"

    "Oh boy.  Can I buy them some bandaids for their wounds at the company store?"

    "Sure thing!  We're giving you an opportunity to earn your first aid supplies by filling in for me, the manager, while I take one of my new hires over to the motel."
