For more than a hundred years, the Department of Labor has been protecting American workers. From ensuring that laborers all across America are making a fair wage and aren't being taken advantage of by employers who force them to work long hours, to guaranteeing that retirees have the ability to provide for themselves and assisting unemployed citizens when they're down on their luck, the Department of Labor concerns itself with all aspects of a person's career. In this book you'll examine the many facets of the department, from unemployment insurance and labor laws to retirement services and everything in between.
