saftey in the workplace

1 post / 0 new

i saw a post about the bp oil spill ... also not long ago there were about 30 coal miners killed or trapped in west virginia .... the osha regulations are often times extreemly strickt , and most people in the work place don't think it's "cool" to be safe , or work safley .... so when a company wants to take advantage of this double standard it's not hard , they over look so many little things , the big things become easily un noticed . and buying off these saftey regulators only makes things worse and more dangerous for the workers ... if we want a trade off with productivity (saving time and money) and saftey , regulaters are gonna have to rationally work with workers and stop accepting bribes . we have to keep critical saftey plans , and identify the smaller less disasterous issues , and use some god damn sense

The Billionaire Hypocrisy of Helping the Poor

There's one thing that both progressives and conservatives can agree on, and they can quote both FDR and Ronald Reagan on it.

And that is that, "The best welfare program is a job."

FDR extended the idea to say that when there are no jobs, the government should act as an employer of last resort.
