Today in Labor History

August 16, 1937
Congress passes the National Apprenticeship Act, establishing a national advisory committee to research and draft regulations establishing minimum standards for apprenticeship programs. It was later amended to permit the Labor Dept. to issue regulations protecting the health, safety and general welfare of apprentices, and to encourage the use of contracts in their hiring and employment.

The Last Big Corporate Tax Cut Didn't Create Jobs
Posted On: Oct 19, 2011

Oct. 19, 2011 | If you listen to anti-worker politicians on the right, you'd think the answer to the nation's ills lies in tax cuts…Corporate tax cuts are often hailed as the solution to American's jobs crisis. But a report issued this week by the U.S. Senate gives lie to that logic with its stark findings that a notable recent effort to create jobs through corporate tax cuts created a multibillion-dollar corporate windfall that did not trickle own to America's workers, and did not create new jobs. (We knew that!) Full story with link to the report is here.
