Scotties Toy Box

The Many Things In My Toy Box ….my view may change due to verifiable evidence

 

“They will fire you,” Newsom told CBS News’ Nancy Cordes. “He got four young kids he have to take care of. So he go to work sick.”

Six current Briggs & Stratton workers told CBS News the company required them to work face to face on the assembly line and that managers rarely wore masks. In mid-April, a month before his death, Jackson and his co-workers walked off the line to protest the lack of safety equipment but say that brought little change. Briggs & Stratton only began requiring its employees to wear masks this week due to a statewide mandate in Wisconsin.

Federal safety regulators are investigating the workers’ complaints.

“The company doesn’t care whether we live or die,” Jackson’s coworker Chance Zombor said.

    Disgusting. Heartbreaking. But so long as it doesn’t touch the powers-that-be, nobody cares.

      Hello Nan. As is clear the Republican priority is to protect the wealth companies / corporations and down playing any needed assistance to the people. The Republican government model is government works / serves the business / wealthy only and the peon working class / lower income provides the means to pay for the government and works to keep the business making a profit for the upper levels / stock market. It is a sick model but it seems our population has been indoctrinated to support it. Hugs
