“Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Some of us remember exactly where we were at the time that President Reagan made that monumental statement during his speech at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. It was a momentous occasion for many people, including the millions of Berliners who had been involuntarily separated from each other for 28 years.
What’s that got to do with the Labor Department, you ask? Well, that quote made me think about other walls that must be torn down.
