Worker protection?

Posted By on Sat, Mar 24, 2007 at 7:16 AM

Legislature doesn't much like that either, in that management calls the shots on such issues. Today, John Brummett writes again about an issue we've discussed -- the lack of a death benefit for workers killed on the job when they have no dependents. It deprived benefits for parents of a young man killed by a faultily rigged woodchipper in a Deltic Timber mill. Sen. Shane Broadway would provide a $50,000 benefit, since the workers comp system prevents lawsuits in such cases. He doesn't stand a chance against the bosses.
