Indiana close to criminalizing exposure of corporate crime

>>>
Indiana lawmakers are moving legislation that would make it a crime to expose corporate crime.

Senate Bill 373, authored by Senator Travis Holdman (R-Markle), would make it illegal for workers, journalists or others to photograph or record video of unsafe, discriminatory or otherwise unethical work place practices.

Our Hoosier brothers and sisters point out that such a law would have prevented child labor laws and food safety regulations. Upton Sinclair's 1905 book "The Jungle" exposed disgusting conditions inside meatpacking plants and led to food inspection. Lewis Hine's photographs of small children in dangerous workplaces resulted in child labor laws and compulsory education.

Another ALEC bill designed to protect meat packing plants and factory farms.

4. It will always come down to the ability of the working class to understand and vote.
