The President's fiscal year 2010 budget for the federal government was just unveiled, and, surprisingly, he found one agency that he thinks deserves a 9% budget cut: This agency is the Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) in the U.S. Department of Labor. Obama proposed to cut its budget from $45 million in fiscal year 2009 to $41 million in fiscal year 2010.
Ignoring Union Members
OLMS is the federal agency that investigates financial crimes that occur when union officials steal from their union. OLMS also investigates cases where union officials engage in fraud and other corrupt practices in conducting union officer elections.
