Keep Government in Business
A lot of people continue to say that government needs to get out of business. A lot of those same people say there should be no minimum wage and that government and business should be separated like government and church. All of the people that say government needs to get out of business and that we don’t need minimum are either blissfully ignorant to the Tammany Hall Era of America or they are purposely ignoring it.
Don’t get me wrong, government should have as little power in business as possible but, government should still be able to delegate laws on child labor, minimum wage, working conditions, outsourcing, and other reasonable regulations. People like Sarah Palin say that regulations are hurting the “Job Creators” and that’s why so many people lost their jobs. That’s ridiculous. Yes, regulations may be a little strenuous on the “Job Creators” but those regulations ensure a safe and healthy environment for younger generations. Owners of Corporations will shout at the top of their lungs “REGULATIONS ARE KILLING JOBS!!!!” but , what they are thinking is “We don’t live in a place where we will be affected by the toxic waste we dump in that river, so why should I have to pay to keep that area clean.”Any body supports no regulations might as well as be shouting fuck you to your face.
I live in Long Beach, which is the 36th biggest city in the United States and it is also one of most dominant maritime ports and also off shore drilling is pretty big in Long Beach. I see the regulations that government has set in place to ensure a safe and healthy take action and work every day. For people to say regulations don’t work, they either don’t live in a big city with a lot of factories or they are in the pocket of of the big corporations that want less regulations. Regulations are good and we should really consider keeping government in business.
