Dying to Work: Death and Injury in the American Workplace
Book reading by Jonathan Karmel

Writer and labor lawyer Jonathan Karmel has written a book about the cost to workers and their families of the lack of health and safety protection on the job. He visits workers and gets their stories on the deaths and permanent injuries that have destroyed their lives. He also looks at the complete failure of the workers compensation system, which has been taken over by the employers and insurance industry. This means that seriously injured workers are being left out in the cold, ending up permanently disabled by the obstacles and roadblocks placed by insurance companies and a worker comp system now run by profiteers.
