A Disturbing Trend

This is an alarming article, to anyone who thinks we need to make our current system for injured workers better, not crappier. Our current system is far, far from perfect, but giving workers poorer and more restricted benefits is not the way forward. Once again, this trend would seem to give an even bigger slice of the economic pie to those who already feast, while impoverishing those who already struggle. Not a recipe for long term social justice and prosperity, in this writer's view.

Our existing system of Workers Compensation was created in response to cruel workplace tragedies at tremendous effort. We should not be quick to dismantle something so important.
