A really shitty court decision

A really shitty court decision

From Nathan Newman

This decision by the Eighth Circuit overrode a requirement by the Department of Labor that an agribusiness company provide toilets near where workers labored.

You can read through the decision, but it’s a torturous bit of judicial second-guessing of the labor department with the simple goal of making exploited agricultural workers lives as miserable as humanly possible.

Apparently, demanding that a toilet be available within a quarter mile of where you labor in the fields is too much decency to ask.

Well, they could be terrorists you know… If we make them walk long distances to pee, maybe that’ll stop terrorists from invading our sacred strawberry fields.

And folks wonder why I hate courts that are more anti-labor than the Bush Administration itself.

More anti-labor than Bush? Can such a thing be possible???
