Restaurant hand-washing rules unnecessary?
Republican Sen. Thom Tillis from North Carolina says there are too many government regulations on businesses including the one requiring restaurant employees to wash their hands after using a restroom.
Class discussion: Is it wrong for government to regulate business? Why or why not? What should be regulated by government - product safety, consumer protection, worker safety, environmental protection, wages, prices, hiring, etcetera? Can you find examples where too little or too much government regulation has caused serious problems?
