Given the problems the United States has been having and the unnecessary, misplaced, and wrong-headed, but very real angst of people about becoming insolvent if we continue to increase the size of the deficit, I find myself wondering why we have not turned to another time-tested and very effective New Deal solution to the problem of growing employment. That solution is the Fair Labor Standards Act.

If you or your family haven’t needed a home care worker lately, I am guessing these workers haven’t made a blip on your radar. That’s OK. I want to give some information about these folks and let you in on something so few are aware of: They are excluded from the FLSA — for some unknown reason. This can change however and I am looking for input on how we can do this, together.
