Feinstein, other senators propose federal standards for egg-laying hens


Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and a half dozen other senators have proposed legislation setting a uniform national standard for the treatment of egg-laying hens, which would ensure egg producers aren't blocked from selling across state lines due to differing state standards.


Now don't we all feel safe and proud that our fine working senators are hard at work saving "we the people" and passing bills to create more jobs and get our economy back on tract?   I am so glad my tax money is spent so well.

The Obama Administration, which harps on its “War on Women” meme, has a war on women of its own: the EEOC is now investigating the coffee chain Marylou’s because the chain hires pretty young women dressed in pink to hawk its product. The investigators have been asking the female clerks about their co-workers’ gender, age, race and body type for over a year.

The company’s founder, Marylou Sandry wrote state Sen. John F. Keenan (D-Quincy): “We have never had a complaint against us for age discrimination or any kind of discrimination. We feel that the EEOC is on a witch hunt.”  Keenan said he wouldn’t get involved, and EEOC officials would not comment.


 Katherine J. Michon, a Boston lawyer who handles discrimination cases, said that the government is going after the coffee chain hard:


“It sounds like they’re trying to explore every possible protected category to see if there is a race-discrimination case, a sex-discrimination case or an age-discrimination case ... whether people are being chosen for the position because they’re white, young and female.”


Marylou’s said the investigation was triggered by Marylou’s local TV ads, where pretty young baristas danced and sang Marylou’s bluesy jingle.
