Just Too Perfect: Who Needs Minimum Wage and Child Labor Laws?

Abby Zimet

Oy. Not content with erasing labor from Maine's labor-rich history, now our idiot Teabagger governor and his GOP cronies want to roll back child labor laws so kids can work longer and later - 'cause who needs school? - and to create a $5.25/hour "training wage." Slavery revival is next. This guy is an embarrassment.
