Workers rights and unions

So…not as quickly as being caught in the blast zone of a nuclear warhead, but a hell of a lot faster than being stuck in the chimney of a restaurant grill?

Oh, that is horrifying.

This is even more horrifying:

“OSHA cited the company for one willful violation and proposed $145,027 in fines, records show.”

What. The. FUCK!!!

Indeed.

That is all the employee death is worth the federal regulators.

Let’s hope the employee’s survivors sue the hell out of the company and the jury finds for them. It was so preventable :disappointed_relieved:

The fine was suppose to encourage the company to put up the guardrail. The company decided that the possibility of a worker dying wasn’t worth the cost of the guardrail. At least there is proof that the company willfully ignored the requirements and knew they were doing so. When this goes to trial that will increase the company’s liability substantially.
