    For example are you aware that PER OSHA "water closet" means a toilet facility maintained within a toilet room for the purpose of both defecation and urination and which is flushed with water.
    Minimum number of Number of employees water closets
    1 to 15.................................................... 1
    16 to 35................................................... 2
    36 to 55................................................... 3
    56 to 80................................................... 4

    So just this ONE OSHA requires if a business has 1 water closet for 15 workers by hiring just ONE worker or 16 the business owner must have 2 water closets!

    Hesitancy because due to more and more rules and regulations coming from this administration at a rate Since 2008 the government has spent 54 billion dollars on regulatory agencies at a 16% growth rate.

    Since President Obama took office regulatory agency employment climbed 13% to more than 281,000 regulatory employees. During the same period all other employment shrank by 5.6%.

    By 2008 the cost to the private economy to comply with federal regulations was 1.75 trillion dollars. 4200 more regulations are waiting for approval in the pipeline, not counting the EPA, the new health care bill, and the Dodd-Frank legislation. It is not known yet how much more those will add?

    So businesses have NO idea what it will cost to add new employees because of Obamacare, Dodd-Frank Act, and all the new rules and regulations!
    Why hire people if you have to spend thousands more in following OSHA,EPA,and all the other alphabet soup rules and regulations!

    Are you opposed to the notion of requiring sanitary conditions for American workers, or do you just think the numbers should be different?

    Also, just to be clear, a facility with 16 employees on site would need two toilets, not two bathrooms.
