Raise minimum wage, force small business to purchase health care if they grow, force business to hire criminals.
If I didn’t know how much the Obama administration cared about us I would think they were deliberately trying to sabotage small business. Good thing he doesn’t give tax breaks to companies like GE, Google and Facebook.
That came to light when the EEOC took action against G4S Secure Solutions, which provides guards for nuclear power plants and other sensitive sites, for refusing to hire a twice-convicted thief as a security guard — even though Pennsylvania state law forbids hiring people with felony convictions as security officers.
Yeah, yeah. I know. “To catch a thief, set a thief” and all that. But the “logical” conclusion is that we can no longer bar convicted child molesters from working at day care centers.

So much for what is not enumerated for the Feds is reserved for the states or the people.
I looked at s2′s link. George Washington’s government had 1 Fed employee per 2500 citizens.
Uhbama’s government fiefdom has 1 employee per 144 citizens.
If we include the military at 1.5 million, which is now very much a standing army, plus Centcom contractors at 137,000 and the post office at 574,000, we have
1 Fed employee per 71 citizens.
No wonder we’re more than broke.

Illegalize everything and the government owns everybody.
“…it could be guilty of ‘race discrimination’?” Is there now a *criminal* race???

So this means the end of the Lautenberg Amendment, right?

As noted in the article (and as is so often the case in government), their race-based “guidance” may end up harming the honest members of those very classes.
As for numbers of government “workers” – add in state, county, and municipal employees for a real eye-opener.
Slightly off-topic, but I noticed in the original post, the Barack-ack-ack Obama regime is called “administration”. If, by “administration”, you mean it in the sense of, “administer an enema: high, hot and helluva lot”, then yes, it’s an administration. But for simplicity, I prefer to call it a regime, in the sense of, “The Obama regime: The People’s monarchy since 2008″
“The EEOC says it should be a federal crime to refuse to hire ex-convicts ”
Congresscritters are just trying to make sure they can find jobs if/when they leave office. Can’t have perspective employers checking up on whether they had sex with underage Dominican prostitutes, for example.

Fat Baxter– what the hell do they need jobs for?? They are paid for life and have life time benefits. I’d like to try to “get along” on what our taxes pay them.

So, wait, is it or isn’t it still racist to say most criminals are minorities? Or is it only racism if you’re not a progressive bucreaucrat/thug?
Really, really over-the-top tired of the self-righteousness of bureaucrats. You’re servants not masters, that means you ask, you don’t order.

“…even though Pennsylvania state law forbids hiring people with felony convictions as security officers.”
There is the proper response to EEOC:
“Pennsylvania state law forbids…”
You got a problem with that? Don’t talk to me; talk to the Governor!”

Ever heard of a “negligent hiring” case?
I’m just sayin’.
Think about it.
Hot damn! All the recidivist prone pedophiles can get jobs in day care. Now that’s an opportunity!

Does this require that the Los Angeles Police Department be required to hire Charles Manson as a patrolman should he be paroled? Maybe a twice convicted bank robber get a job as a vault teller at Bank of America?

In England (before it became Formerly Great Britain), during WW II, there was a ministry of employment that decided who was going to work, and where. If you needed to hire someone, you sent the Ministry a note, then they sent someone around, and you hired him.
It greatly simplified job searches. Here’s a clip from an article about it:
“Regulation 58A of the Defense (General) Regulations” (which empowered the Minister of Labour and National Service to direct any person to perform services of which he is capable anywhere in the Nation),”
