4. This kind of stuff is NOT new. This IS capitalism.......

Back in the day I worked in a shipyard as a Boilermaker. I was a shop steward and I saw MANY examples of management trying to force unsafe jobs or unsafe conditions on workers, especially new and naive workers. And this was back when OSHA was relatively strong and in a place where we had several craft unions and negotiated contracts. IOW, more than 30 years ago. Even back then your life didn't matter, only the surplus value you could put into THEIR pockets.

Apparently it's gotten worse.
