Monday, April 28
04/22/2008 - On April 28 each year, the labor movement observes Workers Memorial Day to commemorate workers who have been killed or injured on the job, and to renew the fight for safety-and-health protections. This year’s theme is, Good Jobs, Safe Jobs. For All.
More than three decades ago, with union backing, Congress passed legislation to establish safety and health standards to protect workers in every industry. In recent years, however, many of the safeguards have been eroded by lax enforcement.
