Is a safe workplace such a radical idea?

There is pro-business, and then there is evil.

Apparently the Alabama Supreme Court can't distinguish between the two.

A worker is exposed to so much benzene at work that it gives him leukemia, but he legally can't have any recourse.

Why is it legal to expose people to life-threatening chemicals in the first place? Is it such a radical idea that workplaces be healthy and safe?

people like to talk about how our legal system is descended from that of the British and how it was the most advanced in the world. is yet one more example of how wrong that is.
