The New Agenda at Labor

After a tough confirmation process, Herman has drafted a game plan:

JOB TRAINING
Help low-skilled workers, school dropouts, and welfare recipients acquire job skills

WORKPLACE SAFETY
Encourage voluntary compliance with safety rules by curbing inspections for companies that have good records

COMP TIME
Mediate a business-labor deal on legislation that lets workers choose time off instead of paid overtime

WAGE GAP
Investigate ways to raise the incomes of women and minorities to the same level as white men's
