Who’s To Blame? Is it We The People?

Health and safety regulations are not a partisan issue.  Elected officials swear an oath to protect the health and welfare of the American people as provided for in the Constitution of the United States.  Organizations push worker safety to the back burner at every level.  Workers look the other way because they just want the job and do not want to make waves.  Managers look the other way because they are told to.  Owners and executives look the other way because they want to protect profits.  Regulations should make it hard for this type of climate to exist.  The electorate needs to support elected officials who want to do the right thing for the American people. We want a strong military to protect us, yet we die by the hundreds and thousands yearly in work related accidents, disasters and emergencies because we allow our free society to become too costly.

      Workers need to enforce their will. It is hard for people to realize they have more power together to get what they need.
