    So if he didn't say that, then it's OK?




    BTW, Bill Clinton never said "Don't diddle the interns" either.

    If he never said it he's not a hypocrite like dems are with the equal wage for women and minimum wage issues. Clinton went on TV when he was running for pres and said stuff like that was behind him as Hilary sat by his side with a big grin. That is beyond hypocrisy.

    Yep. They pretend that the value of the on the job training given exceeds the value of the work performed and the DOL appears to believe them.

    I suppose, but to say that it's somehow different if you're on the other side of the issue seems disingenuous.

    It's like what sawyer's trying to say "Well, David Vitter never SAID not to get a hooker." That doesn't mean it's OK for him to do so.

    Find the quote where he said "You can't **** the help."

    Are you seriously going to tell us that it's OK get a hooker as long as you never said not to?

    When I was in my 20s I worked for a big logging outfit in Calif that hired interns in summer. They got college credits for their forestry degree to do grunt work and supposedly learn about logging. Robinson Timber paid them, minimum wage but they were paid.

    I am for minimum wage and increasing the minimum wage.

    Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't....:shrug.

    I just think that condemning Democrats for doing it when Republicans do it too is rather silly.
