    McCain Takes On Populist Tone Over Job Cuts in Ohio - Wall Street Journal

    Republican presidential candidate John McCain on Thursday jumped onto a populist, anticorporate bandwagon, appearing before workers expected to lose their jobs in the planned shutdown of a large DHL air cargo hub here, and promising to use government powers in an effort to prevent the loss-plagued company from slashing jobs.

    Echoing criticisms expressed by his Democratic rival, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. McCain called for a congressional hearing and an antitrust investigation into plans by global express delivery giant DHL to outsource much of its U.S. operations to shipping heavyweight United Parcel Service Inc.
