    Say Goodbye to Workers' Comp

    The plans in both Texas and Oklahoma give employers almost complete control over the medical and legal process after workers get injured. Employers pick the doctors and can have workers examined — and reexamined — as often as they want. And they can settle claims at any time. Workers must accept whatever is offered or lose all benefits. If they wish to appeal, they can — to a committee set up by their employers.

    ...



    “That’s the system we had in place 100 years ago,” said Trey Gillespie, senior workers’ comp director for the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America. “This is not an innovative concept.”

    I have found that if you wander far enough to either the Left or the Right, you find yourself emerging from the other side of things surrounded by some twisted version of your starting point, as though traveling along some aeternal Möbius strip. Perhaps Hegel's syntheses were little more than the point at which, having run as far and fast as possible to escape our point of origin, we find ourselves on the other side of the point where we began.

    Anything that is at all good for the working class will not survive under government leaders the likes of which we have now.

    In Texas and Oklahoma, Republicans control the government, as I have said before, they are stingy

    the govt SHOULD be stingy with what they do with tax payers money, its not THEIR MONEY

    ABS, if you want to be generous with YOUR money, that's YOUR BUSINESS

    THe only criminals are the thieves that take the money for their own use, which is the opposite of what the sorry liers say they do and their media fed puppets.

    This is so true Extraram,it is not only Good for Employees Indeed but the conributions sic enable most people have enough money for their retirement...In Australia in is COMPULSORY for Superannuation and Workers Compensation...COMPULSORY,some Employers Don't wish to really look after their Employees(Health and Safety,Workers Comp.,Under Paying,Superannuation and all...Here as in the US,some companies,under pay...ect., when caught they are fined Big Time...The likes of Trump ARE THE WORSE...In Australia,going through the Parliament is a Bill to make Company Directors personally responsible for breaking any Law/s in this area...They can try it BUT WILL LOSE EVERYTHING IF CAUGHT...just sayin steve
