Cut DOL, completely. The Dept of Labor has no Constitutional reason to exist.

Cut DOL, completely.
Vic Biorseth, Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Why does the US Dept. of Labor (DOL) exist at all? It was born of an alien notion proclaiming an impossible right to work, implying a legal requirement for someone to become an employer and then employ someone, or employ everyone. Or, if someone is already an employer, legal requirements are implied forcing the employer to keep undesirable employees employed, give them raises, give them benefits including even retirement benefits, and thus, the purpose of the business itself is radically changed. The purpose of the business is no longer the purpose for which it was established; the new purpose for the business is to try to satisfy an impossible to satisfy legal citizen right to work.
If this sounds "revolutionary" to you, go to the head of the class. Preparation for Communist revolution began with organized labor and the establishment of large scale labor unions. Union organization was the first "Community Organizing" effort, born of the closing lines of Marx's Communist Manifesto, to quote:
The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The workers have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.
Workers of all countries, unite!
This was written in 1848, sparking a year of global upheaval and bloody revolution. All the revolutions of the 1848 "Springtime of Revolution" failed, and the movement then turned to "Community Organizing" to build toward eventual global revolution. The most successful branch of this "organizing" involved the establishment of national and international labor unions, all over the world. The purpose was to drive a wedge between workers and employers, and to fiercely alienate them from each other. To convert them into social enemies rather than cooperators in profit. It was a vitally important part of the promotion of class strife, or even class warfare.
At any rate, the spurious Communist argument supporting right to work or right to a job had gained sufficient social acceptance that Congress established in 1888 a Bureau of Labor under the Department of the Interior. In 1903 it became a stand-alone Cabinet-level Department of Labor.
