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

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
