In a recent speech on the floor of the House of Representatives, Oregon Congressman Greg Walden expressed his frustration in dealing with the Department of Labor.

In August, he and 5 other elected representatives from both parties in Oregon sent a letter to Department of Labor Secretary Hilda Solice about the Department of Labor’s practices.

The hot-button issue is the use of “hot-goods orders” which essentially shut down a farm’s ability to ship perishable goods to market.

Over a hundred days later, Solice has still not responded to their concerns.
