Berry Berry Contrary

The N.C. Department of Labor's mandate: protect the "health, safety and general well-being" of more than 4 million workers in the state.

Cherie Berry's purpose in life, as the current N.C. Secretary of Labor: help N.C. businesses avoid the "burdens" of protecting the health, safety, and general well-being of more than 4 million workers.

And she has the gall to brag to business leaders that she stood up to the Charlotte Observer's investigative series on malfeasance in the Department of Labor: "I stood firm and took the heat from The Charlotte Observer."

Mary Fant Donnan, who wants to actually carry out the mandated functions of the department, is running against Berry this fall.
