There are many people who would have us believe that government regulations are bad for everyone. That somehow this loss of time and need to be held to a better standard of practice equals less profit that also hurts the worker. In many ways this is likened to trickle down economics. The same trickle down economics that lead to the decimation of the middle class. Regulations on business is the friend of the average working person. Unchecked capitalism leads to crimes against humanity. As a former construction worker, and teamster I know how much of a pain osha can be. But thank god they are there. Without osha, government regulations, and unions we would be bound by longer hours, lower wages, and horrific work environments. Unfortunately republicans are looking to turn back the clock on us and are succeeding in many ways. There is a history behind the need for regulation, and it's bloody. READ UP! Then decide.
