Its pretty sad when you can't drug test employees for fear of loosing production goals.
Maybe they need to relocate the factories, but where would you go.

Chicago isn’t far. They could move to the East Side or Hegewisch and hire industrious, enterprising Polish and Mexican Americans and build the things right. But those people won’t work for peanuts and will demand respect.

Let's see...no railing or fall protection? What you can't see in that picture is the scaffolding on all sides of the rig. In fact, you can kind of see it in the background. Why don't you post the link to that picture and maybe we can see it more clearly.

Shorts, sleeveless shirts, soft sole shoes...none of those things are safety violations.

Factory safety rules are far different than construction safety rules.
