Nurses Welcome Change to the Labor Department

  1. 6 Nurses Welcome Change in Labor Department

    The nation's largest organization of registered nurses welcomed the December 19 announced appointment of California Congresswoman Hilda Solis as "opening the door to a desperately needed change of course at the Department of Labor."

    "Over the past eight years, the Labor Department has been subverted from what should be its primary mission of promoting the health, safety, and well being of working Americans," said Rose Ann DeMoro, executive director of the 85,000-member California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee.

    "No area of government has better symbolized the failed policies of the Bush administration in its tilt toward corporate interests and hostility to workers, from oversight of health and safety laws to employment standards. As our economic survival as a nation continues to deteriorate, a wholesale change in the priorities and activities of the DOL could not be more needed or timely," said DeMoro.
