Yay!!!

"Last month, Iowa's Attorney General charged the company, Sholom and Aaron Rubashkin, and three managers with 9,311 misdemeanor labor violations. The company had 32 illegal immigrant children working at the plant, the complaint charged, including seven who were fifteen or younger. The Iowa officials said that the child employees handled dangerous equipment and were exposed to hazardous chemicals."

with more professional wording of course

Hmmm
Maybe it's because Bush pretty much deregulated all of those government agencies! The conservatives generally take the notion that the less regulation we have the better. I think we have another candidate who needs to read "The Wrecking Crew."
