American Samoa, Football, & the Minimum Wage

Peter Schiff, who is running for the U.S. Senate in Connecticut and is a financial guru of sorts, videoblogged an interesting response to the interesting CBS/60 Minutes story about football in American Samoa and how federal government mandates (regarding the minimum wage) are destroying the tuna canning industry in this tiny, peaceful island. Peter is responding to the job issue, not the NFL issue.

Here's Part 1 and Part 2 of the original 60 Minutes story. "Football Island" can be watched in its entirety here. And don't those tough guys wearing lava-lavas (skirts) look adorable?
