Ow are corporations like bikers? Eugene Scalia, U.S. Labor Department solicitor, seems to know. During a July event held by the Federalist Society at the National Press Club in D.C., he quoted from a vivid depiction of the annual Harley-Davidson weekend in South Dakota. ” ‘It’s only a small percentage of bikers that make trouble,’ ” Scalia said, reading from the newspaper article. “ ‘But a small percentage of 250,000 is still a lot of troublemakers,’” the son of U.S. Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia repeated to his amused audience. The younger Scalia said that he viewed business’s efforts to comply with federal regulations in a similar vein. “Companies do want to comply with the law,” he said. The Labor Department is making compliance assistance a top priority, adding staff members in that area. But, lest the Bush administration be accused of being too sympathetic to business, Scalia said that he knows that some companies, like some bikers, are bent on trouble. “There still is a role for enforcement,” he said. On that front, Scalia added, the agency would aggressively pursue “willful and repeat violators” of the law.
