I’ve already suggested that subsidies for the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development are the most wasteful and counterproductive item in the federal budget. At least on a per-dollar-spent basis.
But what about a similar exercise for government red tape?
How would we come up with the worst regulation or the most counterproductive regulatory agency?
Thanks to the IRS, I have a strong candidate for the worst regulation, but if I had to pick the worst agency, I’d probably choose the horribly mis-named Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
These bureaucrats are infamous for bone-headed initiatives, such as:
The EEOC making it hard for trucking companies to weed out drunk drivers.
The EEOC telling a coffee shop it had too many attractive waitresses.
The EEOC forcing companies to make special accommodations for “pee-shy” employees.
The EEOC trying to give special employment rights to crooks.
We now have another item for the list.
The bureaucrats apparently like forcing companies to hire people who are more likely to rip off customers, though sometimes they find judges that aren’t nearly so tolerant.
