Train wrecks are a dangerous occurrence in the US and the railroad bosses want to push for 1 man trains with 120 cars.
Warren Buffet owns one of the largest railroads in the world and harasses his employees that speak out about health and safety on the railroads.
Warren Buffet and the other railroad barons are playing game with railroad workers and the lives of the people that these railroads travel through.
Billionaire Warren Buffet fights regulations and health and safety protection for railroad workers and the communities that these railroads go through. This is a deadly threat to health and safety.
Railroad workers and people in communities throughout the country have been killed, injured and contaminated by reckless and criminally negligent railroad bosses who are not held accountable by the corporate controlled Congress.
Billionaire Warren Buffet has invested $34 billion in BNSF for greater profits at the expense of railroad workers and the communities that these railroads go through in the United States. His insurance company Liberty Mutual then makes billions ripping off injured workers and consumers throughout the country.
