The Union Was the Only Friend He Had

So many offenses against decency, so little time. For Labor Day, we note the "death by a thousand cuts" that are Trump's "staggering" assaults on workers' rights. The latest: Under vile cover of Harvey, OSHA has scrubbed a list of workers killed on the job, burying it - without names - and replacing it with back-slapping news of great companies not killing too many people. Point made: "The Chamber of Commerce is fully in charge at OSHA."

Wonderful piece, Abby. Thank you!
My edited version of your last sentence reads thusly: The Chamber of Commerce is fully in charge at USA.
My comment on the removal of the names of workers killed on the job from OSHA’s home page is simply to paraphrase a Woody Guthrie lyric: All they will call you is “Killed on the job”.

Democratic politicians sit on their hands while the “Family Values” party takes care of business.
