End the Madness at the EEOC

With no authority to do so and with flawed factual support, the EEOC has issued an enforcement guideline that would compel employers to discriminate in favor of minority ex-cons. It's past time for Congress to rein in the EEOC and make them withdraw this directive by other name.

(a) The EEOC Enforcement Guidance Procedure

Over 89 million Americans are presently out of the labor force. The New York Times seems to offer a muddled explanation for the fact that employers have money to hire but aren't doing so even when they need extra help.

The Federal Reserve's vision is less cloudy. In its latest beige book the Fed indicates that uncertainty about the impact and requirements of Obamacare is playing a significant role in the national job freeze cutting into sales and hiring.

Of course, it's a major factor, but it is just one large example of the many regulations and actions by federal agencies -- entities with a great deal of power which bear no responsibility for their bad decisions -- that hamper the market and impoverish the nation.

Nothing so illustrates the foolish nature of these restrictions than the EEOC 's effort to compel employers to forego criminal background checks because ex-cons are more likely to be minorities -- a matter ably documented by a very critical Professor Richard A. Epstein.

To understand the genesis of this overreaching, a brief review is in order. As life became more complex, Congress passed laws allowing some details in legislation to be set by administrative agencies. In 1946, believing the agencies were exceeding their authority, Republicans in Congress passed the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) of 1946 which set some limits on the delegation of authority,...

The EEOC is the most racist organization in this country. They make the KKK look like a bunch of choir boys.

Agreed. The way Feldman explains this it's nothing more than legalized extortion.

You think you own a business? No you don’t. You just do the work. The gov is really the owner. It tells you what to do and takes its cut before you get yours.
You do not have the ability to manage your business the way it should be managed.

This is really one step on the way to total gov control of all of the means of production. (See the communist manifesto)
