Chiropractic Health Hints

BY DR. STANLEY LEVINE, D.C.

IGNORE YOUR BACKACHE & SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES!

Back pain, however insignificant it seems, is frequently the
beginning of serious, painful problems. Problems such as pin-
ched nerves, slipped disc, neuralgia, neuritis, (and sometimes
arthritic type pains), tuberculosis and even paralysis.

Schumer Wants
Homework
Regulated

A half-century ago, many
Jews faced the hazards of
sweatshop labor in this coun-
try. lbday, with declining
federal regulation promising
a return to those days, a
Jewish congressman is taking
the lead in tightening regula-
tions and enforcement.
Rep. Charles Schumer, (D-
N.Y.), is considering legisla-
tion that would stiffen
penalties against employers
who exploit workers in non-
industrial settings.
Schumer will reportedly
call for stiff penalties for
employers who violate sweat-
shop labor regulations, and
for an end to recent efforts to
lift restrictions on "industrial
homework" — labor, primari-
ly in the textiles industries,
that is performed in non-
industrial settings.
Schumer's bill, which is on-
ly in draft form, will also
mandate increased coopera-
tion between the various
federal agencies responsible
for labor practices and seek to
maintain the remaining

restrictions on industrial
homework.
A study conducted at
Schumer's request and due
for release next month
reportedly will show that the
problems posed by sweatshop
labor have worsened in the
past decade, in part because of
sharp funding cuts for agen-
cies responsible for enforcing
current regulations.
The industrial homework
issue has been followed close
ly by Jewish groups like the
National Council of Jewish
Women and the Jewish Labor
Committee.

Amendments
May Kill Child
Care Bill

The debate over child care
continues to rage on Capitol
Hill.
There were recent hints
that a key participant in the
religious coalition pushing
the Act for Better Child Care
(ABC)•was pulling back from
a compromise designed to
ease concerns over the use of
federal child-care money in
facilities sponsored by chur-
ches and synagogues.
Now, those hints have
become a reality that some
Jewish activists suggest will
cripple the bill.
The U.S. Catholic Con-
ference is now promoting
several amendments which
would allow child-care
vouchers to be used for sec-
tarian purposes. The amend-
ments will be introduced soon
by Sen. Wendell H. Ford, (D-
Ky.), and Sen. Dave
Durenberger, (R-Minn.).
"In other words," said one
Jewish activist, "federal
money could be used to pro-
vide education on sectarian
issues, as well as for basic
child care services. This is
clearly something Jewish
groups will have a hard time
accepting?'
But not all Jewish groups.
Although Agudath Israel of
America has not taken an of-
ficial position, the amend-
ments "look consistent with
what we have been advo-
cating," according to the
group's Washington represen-
tative, Nesanel Kasnett.
But other Jewish activists
worry that the amendments
will unravel the coalition
pushing the ABC bill.
"This kind of effort will kill
the bill — dead," said Judy
Golub, assistant Washington-7'
representative or the
American Jewish Committee.

The Last Thing A Burglar Wants To See

proper role of our leadership
in a situation in which an ob-
jective analysis indicates we
need more immigrants, but
popular opinion might say
otherwise?"
Swartz is particularly sen-
sitive to the tremendous
potential for strife between
groups. And Jewish organiza-
tions, he said, have been at
the forefront of efforts to avoid
helping one group of potential
immigrants at the expense of
others.
"The Jewish community
has consistently tried to
uphold coalitions with other
groups to develop a kind of
`equal opportunity' immigra-
tion," he said. "And the
Jewish community is strong-
ly oriented toward family
values; there is a clear con-
sensus to resist any narrow-
ing of the definition of family
for immigration purposes."
Swartz created the Na-
tional Forum in 1981; cur-
rently, the group is a con-
federation of some 120
smaller organizations
representing almost every
major ethnic group in the
country.
Although he is not Jewish,
Swartz said that anti-
Semitism has been a major
reason for his focus on
pluralism issues.

The spine is a complex system of nerves, muscles, bones,
ligaments and cartilage which are interconnected to control
specific areas of the body. When the bones, or VERTEBRAE
DR. LEVINE
are misaligned, they pinch the surrounding body. This often
results in complications which can be severe and permanent.
