Does anyone in Obama’s regime understand the legal term “felon”?
Ensuring undocumented workers get paid and improving worker safety are two priorities for the Department of Labor, its first Hispanic secretary said Wednesday.
Hilda Solis visited a green jobs event in northern New Jersey, where she said unpaid wages will continue to be a problem for day laborers until comprehensive immigration reform is undertaken at the federal level. But she cautioned that stabilizing the economy and health care reform must come first for President Barack Obama’s administration.
Day laborers, many of them Hispanic, are sometimes denied payment and are afraid to press for wages when they’re in the country illegally. Solis, who took office Feb. 24, said she takes this “very seriously.”
“We’re going to have people going out in the field and investigating,” Solis said, noting that she differs from her predecessor, Elaine Chao, in this approach. “We’re going to be more robust in this area and also with respect to OSHA.”
She’ll ‘press for wages’ to illegal aliens, but won’t enforce the laws they–and their employers–broke in violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Code?
The government is saturated with Socialist looters, scofflaws, and illegal alien advocates.
It’s going to be a long four years.
