Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis records an eight-minute Labor Day video on You Tube, telling workers that despite an unemployment rate above 9 percent, she will not stop working until "every American is back on their feet."

In an interview with The Post's Peter Whoriskey, Solis sees progress but a long road ahead in helping workers.

Nazi lovin puke! It's not even funny and a terrible Hitler look-a-like. Go find a Tea-bagger website to post spew!

However, I am not sure what a Labor Sec can do. They don't have much power over greedy corps suckin the life savings out of every person trying to struggle thru these hard times. Of course, 8+ years of a republican admin and congress stiffled innovation and shot millions of jobs and dollars overseas... bank bailouts and the "too big to fail" catastrophe during bush/cheney. It is gonna take time to fix ALL their evil errors. We can start with voting out ALL career politicans. We need folks in Congress who believe in term limits and NO MORE raises for government AND Congress. Stronger rules on the military and SES appointed upper levels windfalling back into corporate power and money. I see that happening daily here outside the beltway.
