Fox News Host: Who Needs Labor Laws?

On Fox News’ The Five this week, host Eric Bolling and his co-hosts agreed that U.S. labor laws should be more like China’s: nonexistent. “Some of the economies that are starting to kick our butt, those people work hard,” said Bolling. “There aren’t labor laws, there aren’t minimum wages, they’re working harder than we are.” Co-host Bob Beckel agreed, suggesting, “That’s what we should have—no labor law and no minimum wage. They work for a dollar a week.” Bolling clarified that in the U.S. we would “Certainly hold them to a maximum of hours per week, for sure,” not acknowledging that such a limit would, in fact, be a labor law.
