It May Be Work, But It's Not 'Making A Living' by poasterchild It May Be Work, But It's Not 'Making A Living' by poasterchild

More than 50,000 workers die from occupational disease and another 4,500 die from industrial accidents. That won't change until it gets expensive for big business to keep letting workers die from preventable injuries and disease.  For more information: www.aflcio.org/Issues/Job-Safe…

Yeah, who has the time and money to invest in protection of their workers? The true "beauty" of capitalism - it's all about the money.

Some 90% of these deaths are due to occupational disease (e.g., black lung in miners) caused by chronic exposure to toxics, bioagents, and mechanical agents in the workplace.  Only about 10% are due to acute traumatic  injuries.
