Connect the HP LaserJet 1020 printer wireless to the Macs in your house

My HP LaserJet 1020 printer is a great work horse.

It was hooked up to my PC but I want it to work with my iMac.

You need some other drivers for your Mac.

1. Visit this site, follow the instructions, and choose the HP LaserJet 1022 settings.

2. Do this on every Mac you want to use. I installed the drivers on an iMac and a Mac AirBook.

3. Get an Apple AirPort Express Base Station - it's $99.00 from Apple.

4. On each Mac, open System Preferences and choose Print & Scan.

Press the + sign and add the new 1020/1022 HP Printer to your list.

 

Good luck!

Mexican "guest workers" file suit against CJ's Seafood


H-2B visa workers have files complaints with the U.S. Labor Department accusing CJ's Seafood of Breaux Bridge, LA of being locked in the facility, forced to work double and triple shifts without overtime compensation and not being allowed to take breaks.

From the Huffington Post:

"Earlier this year, the Labor Department introduced new rules that would reform the H-2B program. Among other changes, the reforms would force companies to make a greater effort to hire American workers before bringing on foreign guest workers; require companies to foot the bill for workers' visas and travel expenses; and ramp up penalties on employers that violate program rules.

Claiming the new rules would leave employers short-staffed, business groups including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have managed to temporarily halt the reforms through a federal lawsuit."
