    the GOP has worked tirelessly to cut the budget of OSHA, make sure corporations aren't held really accountable for deaths and injuries (they pay a small fine out of their profits at most), and made sure OSHA inspections are rare events.  And that's on top of trying to gut the few remaining worker safety requirements.

    When the Sensata plant closed down, the first thing Bain Capitol did was to remove ALL of the safety gear from the factory equipment that was being shipped to China.  No laws in China regarding worker safety or health which adds to the burgening profits of industrialists.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
