Will Uncovered Workers Get U.S. House Help?

The U.S. House Education and Labor Committee's Web site lists an interesting hearing for May 24: "Workplace Safety: Why do Millions of Workers Remain Without OSHA Coverage?" The hearing is scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. Eastern in Room 2175 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

The tantalizing note at the end of this short item read, "Witnesses to be announced." Whether labor, management, government, or other, the identify of whoever will be asked to testify wasn't disclosed.

The panel conducting the hearing is the Labor Committee's Workforce Protections Subcommittee, which has eight members and is chaired by Rep. Lynn Woolsey, D-Calif. Last week, she introduced a legislative package she called The Balancing Act that includes more assistance for family and medical leave, expanded child care, incentives for family-friendly workplaces, telecommuting incentives, and benefits for part-time workers.
