Personnel Concepts Peers into the Future of Labor Law

Posted in Federal Labor Law, Random Musings, State Labor Law by laborlawguy on April 1, 2009

Personnel Concepts is at it again. With Obama and the Democrats exploiting their window of opportunity (aka the Second Great Depression and a fawning media) before it closes, there is now a bill before Congress to turn the Family and Medical Leave (FMLA) Act, which currently offers 12 weeks of unpaid leave for personal issues, into a paid leave option.

Eurosocialism here we come, ready or not.

However, even as Personnel Concepts points out, there’s little chance that this law, called the Family Leave Insurance Act will get anywhere, what with health care reform (aka government-rationed health care) on the front burner. (Do you think they could couple the two and slip them by unnoticed? They may try!)

Meanwhile, if you want to see what Eurosocialism offers on the labor front, try this article from Gov Regs (a blog), “Recession, European Style.” Germany sounds ideal, and France just a bunch of people who enjoy laziness.

    “Eurosocialism” is great I guess for some things. I don’t think we can become a socialized nation in one area or a few. In order for it to work out our ENTIRE way of life would more than likely have to become socialistic. I don’t think we are ready for that and there would be way to much work involved. If you ask me I think we built a house of cards (financial/real estate market) and now that it’s collapsed we are building another and socialism is leading us there. Will the US exist in the next 10-20 years?!
