    I’m not in danger of being killed on the job, however the effect of standing on my feet 70+ hours a week is speeding me on the road to becoming crippled.
    NO HEALTH INSURANCE
    So I’m SOL!

    Wonder how many workplace deaths occurred in those socialist worker’s paradises like Venezuela, China and Cuba? Workplace injuries/deaths are always followed by litigation from the family of the deceased. It’s more economical to just establish safe workplace policy and procedures.

    When my father was killed on the job in 1986, current legislation stated that the families of the deceased could not sue the employer without forfeiting the right to predetermined compensation, unless it could be determined that the employer had purposely caused the death of the decedent. It also said that if the company had declared bankruptcy within the previous five years, they were not liable for paying out any predetermined compensation. In short, since my father had company guaranteed double indemnity life insurance, a 401k through the company, and a matching pension through the company, which had just declared bankruptcy to avoid shareholder cuts, my family received $0 upon his death, with no legal recourse.
    I’m not sure how the law has changed since, but I have always had third party insurance and savings funds.

    Only in the barbaric USA would have that problem of no medical coverage.

    You do know that Stephanie McMillan created this strip and still writes and draws it don’t you? Not a good analogy. And if you want an antidote to her point of view there are plenty to choose from. Just not here. Unless you count all the ones who comment here already. So you the 5th to 8th wheel here on this. Just a thought.

    More than one million are killed in China alone in a year but, they are not telling anyone and anyway, who’s counting there…
