Department of (Organized) Labor
By Sean P. Redmond 10/28/14
The Department of Labor’s (DOL) mission statement includes fostering the welfare of wage earners, job seekers, and retirees; improving working conditions; advancing opportunities for employment; and assuring work-related benefits and rights. Notably, it does not include rating employers based on their union or non-union status. After all, although it can be hard to tell sometimes, it’s not called the Department of Organized Labor.
