Labor Movement Malpractice: Relinquishing the Fight for Workplace Health and Safety - by repost
Labor officials in California have passively watched Democratic Governor Jerry Brown put California's state workplace health and safety agency-Cal/OSHA on a starvation diet. The agency has less enforcement resources than under Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, but state labor officials appear to have employed a strategy of maintaining access and friendly relations with Brown and his appointees at all costs, relinquishing the fight for workplace safety.

Reviving an Explosive Topic: Reducing Work Hours - by Astrid Fadler
In truth, the introduction of the eight-hour day, the free Saturday and the fifth vacation week (in Austria) did not cause economic crises. Reduced working hours means more distribution justice for the general public and more quality of life for workers. The efficiency of employees increases and the danger of accident declines through reduced working hours. Whoever works less lives healthier and has more time for the family, for (personal) development and for voluntary activity.
