In the first few weeks working in the Delavan, Wi. plant I saw an obvious safety issue and reported it to my supervisor.
The response was That s the way it s been done for years . So I brought it to the attention of the manager, and he just literally laughed at me. A year later I wound up with a triple Hernia and lost my savings and everything in my checking account due to injury that I warned them about. When I went back to work nothing has changed, and I was re-injured because of the safety issue and had to sell things to live.
When I returned back to work for the third time, there were a lot of changes but the safety issue that was causing the injuries. Therefore, I was injured again.
I have lost over $46,000 from a work injury in 1 1/2 years. They even submitted a video showing a temp working with a shortened work table and much smaller and much lighter parts that caused my injuries.
Monetary Loss: $46000.
