Dying to Work: Jonathan Karmel on dangerous workplaces

In January 2019, the Trump admin dealt a blow to workers by blocking a rule requiring most employers to report details of workplace injuries. This is one of many rollbacks of workplace safety protections. The fallout could worsen an already treacherous situation for American workers. This story is told in the new book, Dying to Work: Death & Injury in the American Workplace, by Jonathan Karmel, a labor lawyer. He is co-chair of the American Bar Association Occupational Safety & Health Committee. Karmel discusses stories of workers who have been injured on the job with little legal recourse, and what can be done about it. (April 3, 2019 broadcast)
