8. Very little, I'm afraid.
The Job Creation Act of 2004 (which didn't require that any jobs actually be created with repatriated profits) was passed on a bi-partisan vote. The usual DLC suspects voted with the repubs to pass CAFTA, a trade deal conspicuously devoid of labor and environmental protections. And the dems, walking in lockstep with the Bush Administration and Corporate America, are supporting Guest Worker Programs (about as Orwellian as The Job Creation Act).

The dems have been shitting on labor for some time now, talk is cheap.
