    the Labor Dept feels under pressure to hammer out what are in essence no-fault agreements, where the corporations screw a worker, then hide the evidence the worker needs to prove their case, and the company promises not to sin again---and they continue business as usual. The Justice Dept. has the ability to step up pressure on corporations all on its own, and Eric Holder, from where I sit, walks softly, and doesn't even attempt to lift the big stick that the law gives his office to weild. I remember the days when government lawyers carried some weight--at Justice, SEC, FTC, etc. In this very relaxed regulatory climate, corporations will keep pushing. I see more and more per diem and part time hires, in a business where these workers make important decisions concerning people's health. It is not an encouraging picture.
