Republicans enrich themselves, just like DIRt/DLSE enriching those that do not need their help...CMS, WalMart, Brinker, Kenneth Cole, etc.

Governor's wishes are passed down to those that can implement his directives (but really the big corporations' desire). He wants meal & rest periods evaporated because his financial backers want to keep screwing their employees, then word is passed down to the likes of Jose Millan, Greg Rupp, Donna Dell, Robert Jones, Victoria Bradshaw, John Rea, John Duncan, and Angela Bradstreet. Regulations are circumvented, "emergency" rules are attempted, and policies are changed. State government is about serving the people, not the corporations.
Nowadays, Republicans (and I am registered to vote as a Republican) help those that do not need help. Brinker Restaurants does not need help, WalMart does not need help, Kenneth Cole does not need help, Hansen does not need help, Unisys does not need help, yet each of these corporations received a direct benefit from the DIRt/DLSE in the way of financial contracts, policy changes, regulation re-vamping, and overt refusal to investigate violations of state law. In DIRt/DLSE's world, the rich only help the rich. The poor has no voice and certainly not in the DLSE. If you want the DLSE's help, you had better have money, you should have already contributed to Governor Steroid's campaign, and you better know other rich people.
To hit this point further, yesterday's newsbreak of the Republican National Committee (RNC) paying $150,000.00 for republican VP candidate Sara Palin's clothes will not be covered by the major news agencies because guess who owns the news agencies? That's right, rich people. Sara Palin's gonna work for regular America, because regular America can spend $18,000/week on clothes just like Sara Palin. Our economy is in the toilet, "Maverick" McCain says he hates waste, and his own RNC spends $150,000 on buying more of Palin's skirts, heels, and purses. This just in: VP candidate Joe Biden just got a $100 gift certificate from Men's Wearhouse.

DepartmentofIndustrialRelations
Its Division of Apprenticeship Standards Inadequately Oversees Apprenticeship Programs

KEY FINDINGS

The division suspended apprenticeship program audits in 2004 and did not follow up on corrective action related to audits it had started. Until the division resumes its audits and ensures that the apprenticeship committees correct any weaknesses identified, it will have difficulty measuring the success of the programs and the quality of the training apprentices receive.

The division has not resolved apprentice complaints in a timely manner, taking over four years in some cases to investigate the facts of complaints.

The division has not adequately monitored the apprentice recruitment and selection process, making it nearly impossible to determine whether committees are adhering to equal opportunity requirements or to identify potential barriers to women and minorities.

Division field offices could improve their oversight of committees through improved attendance at committee meetings, establishing a formal process for tracking the resolution of issues or questions, and maintaining an up to date list of programs.

While the division’s staffing levels have not increased in step with legal obligations, the division has failed to document priorities for meeting these obligations for existing staff, which would help maximize the use of existing staff and identify additional staffing needs.

The division does not adequately track and disseminate information to the Legislature, thus missing the opportunity to make it aware of programs and gain valuable feedback.

The department is slow to distribute apprenticeship training contribution funds. It has only distributed as grants $1.1 million of the roughly $15.1 million that had been deposited into the training fund as of June 30, 2005.
The division does not properly maintain its data on the status of apprentices. This data, if accurate, could be used to oversee programs.

My attorney doesn't do class action, so you'll need to find an attorney that specializes in class action.

Well, when you guys are done trashing each other you might want to resume your duties to investigate Wal-Mart at 732 Center Drive, San Marcos, CA (San Diego County). Again, a joint state and federal task program of DEA, Labor, DOJ, OSHA, FEHA, ICE, is recommended to pursue employment conditions after a civil lawsuit puts ethno-female gender masters at the helm of a "galley slave ship". Like DIR, but worse", it's some, but not all, of the women "managers" and the Mexican "managers" creating a third world sweatshop in our very own North County San Diego. Bring in ICE as some of the rank and file are probably using borrowed SS and gov. IDs, a third column reporting to our Mexican masters. They're well organized, wise and well practiced in deception. When shuttered an incentive for Wal-Mart Company to do something about how we Americans are being treated. Send in POST certified investigators with court ordered subpoenas on this gig. I'll cooperate with you when you show in force.
