Just a few weeks after 55-year-old charter boat captain William Allen Kruse was hired by BP to help with the oil spill cleanup that threatened his livelihood and community, he killed himself. A deckhand who worked for Kruse said working as one of BP's "vessels of opportunity" was a stressful and confusing experience. "We're helping cover up the lie," a 27-year-old colleague of Kruse told The Washington Post. "We're burying ourselves. We're helping them cover up the lie that's putting us out of work."

We Are All Pharma-Bro Suckers

"Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli became one of the most notorious people in America for hiking the price of a rarely used life-saving drug by 4,000 percent in September of 2015.

And nearly a year later, dozens of reports are now coming out about how Mylan Pharmaceuticals hiked the price of the very common life-saving EpiPen by over 450% since Mylan bought EpiPen in 2007.
