Actually, I remember reading that OSHA recommends only certain types of gloves for trichloroethelene because it can permeate the most common types of safety gloves and then be trapped against your skin by the glove, unable to evaporate. You are supposedly better of using it bare handed because the evaporation is so fast.
I believe chemical resistant gloves like neoprene are recommended and they are readily available, so no reason not to use them.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
