Special exemption protects major company in her district from $2 jump
Posted: January 12, 2007 WorldNetDaily.com
A special exemption in the nation's proposed new minimum wage law could benefit a company headquartered in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's district, and several Republican members of the U.S. House are objecting.
But while the proposed change in law adds American territories to the minimum wage requirements for the first time, American Samoa remains exempt. That's where Del Monte's brand name StarKist tuna has a huge plant, employing thousands of workers who would have been affected by inclusion in the minimum wage plan more.....
Sure glad Ninny Pelosi and the dems are being fair in their first 100 days!
I am sure Stephanie Tubbs Jones of the ethics committee, would love to take another one of her tax payer funded trip to Somoa. This will give her a great excuse!
