If this doesn't get your blood boiling regarding the plight of the economy and general callousness toward workers in this country I don't know what will.

Just more of the wonderful mentality that if you're a low-wage temp worker, then you are obviously stupid lazy human garbage who deserves to be in poverty and then die in agony.

That is really horrible, and there's a lot of people and that company as a whole who deserve very, very harsh punishment.

Sounds like the appropriate measures are being taken re: criminal and civil proceedings.

Sounds like the appropriate measures should have been taken before this man suffered horribly and died, but hey, the free market will handle everything!

It's like an inter-dimensional time portal was opened somewhere that leads to the Gilded Age, and it was intentionally left open. This would explain sooooo much.

"I have no responsibility to help or save the life of a fellow person at the expense of myself." /typical right-wing response.


This is the kind of attitude that right-wingers have when they oppose Good Samaritan laws.

If right-wingers had their way, there'd be no law that mandated that we all help our fellow man if his health is in danger.
