Workers’ Compensation SOBs and Global WOE from Australia Canada and USA

WORKERS’ Compensation is a HUGE PROBLEM in USA, Canada, UK, Australia & beyond.. The Australians are somewhat organized…. Canadian are vocal…. Americans……not so much.

So many sad, SOB stories in Workers Compensation, that non-injured people so often fail to believe, huh?

Well, as you know, WITHOUT A BLOG AND A GROWING DATABASE, INJURED WORKERS ARE UNARMED. UNPROTECTED AND SOL  IN THE GLOBAL WAR ON WORKERS.

It’s time for Injured Workers Uniting – Silent No More because SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH WORKERS’ COMPENSATION, ISN’T IT?

Here’s one group in Australia, INJURED WORKERS SUPPORT NETWORK AUSTRALIA,

What is the Injured Workers Support Network? Your Questions Answered

This week the main question asked was “What is the Injured Workers Support Network?”

 

IW AUSTRALIAN NETWORK STORIES 8 6 2016



WE NEED GROUPS LIKE THIS EVERYWHERE, SO IT WOULD SEEM TO ME, IN EVERY COUNTRY AND EACH OF THOSE COUNTRIES WITH WORKERS THEN MUST CONNECT WITH THE OTHERS. THE INTERNET MAKES IT POSSIBLE.  Maybe something like this:

 

IDWA-USA Injured Disabled Workers Associations – USA

ABOUT THIS GROUP

IDWA-USA Injured Disabled Workers Associations – USA is an idea whose time has come.  Join in the vision of INJURED DISABLED WORKERS ASSOCIATIONS across the USA to include every State, and around the globe

Coming soon, something like:

IDWA-AU Injured Disabled Workers Associations – Australia

IDWA – CANADA – Injured Disabled Workers Associations – Canada

IDWA – Injured Disabled Workers Association – UK

IDWA – Injured Disabled Workers Association – Singapore




Joining in creating a global effort… one group, one page, one post, one blog, one email, one phone call, one action at a time…

Any time, anywhere and Injured Worker reaches out for help, I want the hand of IDWA to be there, and for that, I am responsible.

 

Here’s the Australia website…. INJURED WORKERS SUPPORT NETWORK AUSTRALIA http://www.injuredworkerssupport.org.au/

Contact info is at the end of the brief video… I’ll do what I can to reach out to Rowmen. Perhaps you will, too?

They even invite Injured Worker stories, and probably don’t have nasty ol’ trolls trying to stop them from helping, by threatening “legal action.”

# # #

Sidebar: The editor I thought would be able to help ME get YOUR stories properly edited and formatted and ready for ebook didn’t work out. I think the topic of what’s happening is too harsh.  “Next!”     We may just put it together and e-publish on Create Space and call it ” SURVIVING WORKERS COMPENSATION – Draft 1″  😀

cognitive dissonance

NOBODY WANTS TO BELIEVE THIS KRAP HAPPENS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY….. UNDERSTAND THAT, AND CONDUCT YOURSELVES ACCORDINGLY.

# # #

In the USA we have NAIDW.org – a great online resource. Give Jon A. Arbay a shout-out and see if they need any volunteers to help with anything and everything… Maybe Jon will address this group in a FB Note or blog and tell us how we can support them supporting American Injured Workers.

Here’s their FB page:
https://www.facebook.com/naidw/ 😀

I think he’s still here in this group too, unless we ran him off.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Who will find out about a similar group in Canada and bring the info back to this group?

On FB there is Injured Workers Fighting WSIB but it says it’s a ‘government organization’… ?? https://www.facebook.com/ONIWGNETWORK/

Here is their Google+ site on WSIB Corruption? https://plus.google.com/communities/107513170697707197393

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you are a part of these organizations, please check with your members and bring a post here to this group, identify what sort of help you need, and we’ll see what we can do.

I reached out to some other virtual groups recently; we’ll see how they respond… I’m pretty hopeful that once they grasp the atrocities being committed, they will want to lend a hand.

If any of you have made any progress with establishing your own blog, let me know. Send me the link with WORKCOMP BLOG somewhere in the subject line at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com and start building your email list.

We need “units of service in every state—people to people.” I would imagine the same is required in Canada… province to province?

FB is not enough….

In USA, Injured Workers did not fight against a known industry Workers’ Compensation propaganda blitz that was told about in February, and launched in May, publicly, on their blogs.

If you don’t follow industry blogs, and don’t have your own blog, well, you know the ol’ saying… WITHOUT A BLOG….. INJURED WORKERS ARE UNARMED AND UNPROTECTED AND SOL.

IDEAS??!?!

Anybody there with an interest in saving lives from the WorkComp extermination machinery with some extra blogging etc…#OccupyVirtually….. as if lives depend on it??

There is one active Injured Worker blogger in the USA, to the best of my knowledge. The US Work Comp industry has 22 bloggers shaping public opinion with massive amounts of disinformation.

There are a handful of Injured Worker’s with Facebook pages and groups. A couple posters on LinkedIn. Any other BLOGGERS you have discovered?

My 2 WorkComp blogs:

I am working on assembling some anonymous injured worker stories (for the protection of the injured workers from retaliation) and I’m working on creating an eCourse to illustrate how to escape the system and regain/reclaim civil and human rights.

Too many injured Workers our “dying on their knees”

The Australians in the above video seem to have a model that works. Any thoughts?

MESSAGE me or mail at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com if you have ideas to share? Thanks! Linda

PS. #DodgeTheRads! It’s dangerous out there!

ps What do RADS have to do with Workers’ Compensation, you may opine??!!  Think about compromised immune systems, for starters.  Google search YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK.  Take all necessary precautions.   After Fukushima triple nuclear meltdowns in March 2011, many Australians believed the nuclear industry propaganda that they were ‘safe’ in the Southern Hemisphere… that was partially true…for a few weeks.  That was a long time ago, and the internet has been seriously ‘scrubbed’ so you don’t have to fret too much about those harsh realities either.  Just sayin…

How do you get from here to there after WorkComp? Here’s an update on Passive Income Prep School…

Linda Ayres looking for The Magic!

‪#‎PassiveIncomePrepSchool‬

Thanks, Colleen Arneil!!! Day 1 steps were simple and powerful!

Step 1 — 10 points – I showed up live at 11 to the Passive Income Lounge; calendar marked to be there tomorrow, too.

Step 2 – 10 points – My eCourse topic is WorkComp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills

The Select Your Topic action was clarifying and confirming/personally validating.

The “Validate My Idea” exercise was real powerful, and had me smiling.

On UDEMY WorkComp had matches, but I did discover two courses

1) Introduction to Workers Compensation Surveillance by a private investigator [ a horrible and harsh reality of the practices of WorkComp in America, Canada, UK and Australia….]

2)VA Fully Developed Disability Claims – ‘incapacitation’ is the military equivalent of WorkComp… and it looks like a soldier developed that 6 section curriculum, with a very left-brain military organizational structure. I may have to study that! 😀

2) Amazon had 2,654 books on WorkComp; it had 6,330 books for Injured Workers (mostly written by attorneys, but a few that touched on Survival, written by other Injured Workers — most were written a few years ago, and some were had introductions by attorneys… none of those were sugar-coated. Most of the books seemed to be ‘industry propaganda’ but I even found one by a former WorkComp commissioner … spilling the beans on the atrocities…and offering some solutions.

That was a totally cool exercise. I also found my log in to your eCourse that I purchased how long ago?

I even posted a couple related thoughts on LinkedIn (they know me in the WorkComp community there; I am one of just a couple of Injured Worker BLOGGERS in the USA… I also want to do an eCourse on BEGINNING TO BLOG….so that Human Rights and Civil Rights activists can better harness the power of social media.

“WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW” is a little slogan/meme I have used for years… it fits. 😀

And below are images of how far I got so far in creating a course… I would welcome feedback on which is more inviting, considering that most Injured Workers in America are being seriously abused by a system that intends only harm, and many feel (and are!) quite dis-empowered.. and hope is a long forgotten emotion for too many.

See you tomorrow! Thank you! xoxoxox

Colleen Arneil This is great Linda! Kudos on the hard work. It’s so empowering to show this specific demographic about what IS possible still.
Linda Ayres
Linda AyresThanks Colleen Arneil – there seem to be 8.9 million American injured workers on Social Security Disability, and another stat is 54 million Injured and Disabled Workers across America. Canada, Australia, UK all have the very same challenges. Yes, we’re quite a demographic….!! We serve as extreme profit centers for some pretty vile racketeers…. xoxoox
Linda Ayres

DAY 2 – “What Makes you YOU?

#PassiveIncomePrepSchool

Thanks Colleen Arneil I love the structure here, too!

SUMMARY:
1) I am a Writer, Warrior, TBI WorkComp Survivor,
2) I am a Blogger– WorkComp and Nuclear Warnings
3) At times, sometimes surprising to me, I can swear in some of the most un-lady like manners….at some of the most influential people, if they happen to annoy.

Step 1 — 10 points – I showed up at FB live at 11 to the Passive Income Lounge; calendar marked to be there tomorrow, too.
Step 2 – 10 points – 3 Random nuggets about me… ‘owning who I am, flaunting it and sharing it…’

1. WorkComp is one of the ‘dirty little secrets’ that puts all of us risk. The#YouEconomy may changes that very soon! I slipped on ice at work and conked my head in 2012… and learned the meaning of “TBI – Traumatic Brain Injury.” I am a TBI Survivor and Warrior!
Neurologists all said, ‘EMBRACE THE NEW YOU” and this ‘new me’ was not as fast, smart and perky as the ol’ me. I said to one doctor, “Well, I don’t know who this new chick is, but if I am supposed to embrace her, I think they better plan to rehabilitate me — and train me to become a neuro-scientist!” He was not sure if I was kidding or not, so he invited me to an annual Brain Injury Conference that weekend, but warned me that it was primarily for military and medical professionals. THAT was the beginning of my real grasp of#Concussion.
[If you haven’t seen the movie, Concussion, get the dvd, and watch the back story and the documentary included, also. Dr. Omalu is quite the American Warrior — fought with the NFL — and survived, and changes are a ‘comin…PS If you have a friend or loved one with a #Concussion, try not to say mean stuff like, ‘you like fine, get over it!’ .]

2. I learned to remind attorneys and workers’ comp ‘doctors’ that I’m injured not stupid when I encountered some of their …. shenaningans and improprieties.
Without benefit of competent legal counsel, in less than 5 years, the ‘parties reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement.” and it is upon that ROCK I hope to empower other injured workers in America, Canada, UK and Australia, and beyond, how to fight a ‘rigged’ system and get out with your life. Some of my Injured and disabled friends have been fighting for their lives for more than 5, 10, 15, 20 and some even 30 years. It’s a horrible system of abuse and torture, and if one is not permanently and totally disabled going in, the risk is quite high for being so before ever escaping. One book, co-authored by an Injured Worker and an attorney, (discovered in yesterday’s PassiveIncomePrepSchool assignment had a more polite way to describe the improprieties that most all Injured Workers face. It said something like, “Trust your Mother, but cut the deck anyway.” Something relative to playing cards and protecting one’s self against cheaters.

” I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORKCOMP SURVIVOR. BE ONE, TOO.” is one of my memes.
Another is, “Without a blog and a growing database, Injured Workers are Unarmed and Unprotected in the Global War on Workers.”
[LinkedIn influencers have found my …. transparency… simultaneously refreshing, alarming and intimidating…Some have revised their guidebooks based on my input..]

3. THANKS FOR PERMISSION TODAY TO BE TOTALLY AUTHENTIC, AND EVEN SWEAR LIKE A SALTY SAILOR!!!
Speech therapists and clinical psychs say “quit swearing” and that’s as helpful as saying “quit forgetting and stop being so damn confused and disorganized…” Expletives are not uncommon, for years, post brain injury. It is sometimes the least important of the impairments to address….. the brain does regulate Everything. POST-TBI …. my levels of decorum hardly exists! F**k!

Thanks again for all you do to make the world a better place, and make us laugh in the process!

Onward!

See y’all tomorrow!

DAY 3 – MISS THIS AND MAKE NO MONEY

#PassiveIncomePrepSchool Colleen Arneil

– Better late than not at all! 😀

Many of the books on Workers Compensation and or Injured Workers either had NO REVIEWS or happy-happy ones that appeared to be ‘solicited reviews’..

I will have to dig a little deeper… a theme for why people LOVED the books could be summed up with “SAVED MY LIFE.”

‘Crappy Reviews’ were more of a ‘surrender’ to the ‘snake pit’ of the ‘corruption….’

State-specific books confused some people, and others were annoyed that they purchased books not knowing they were State specific.

The exercise helps me see that my ‘niche’ is on target… I see no value in playing the ‘rigged legal game’ and my ebook and eCourse are aimed at helping injured workers (and their attorneys, if they have them) do whatever is necessary to ‘encourage’ all stakeholders coming together with impartial mediators and structured settlement teams.

DOJ can address the criminal activities and malfeasance… helping to FREE THE HOSTAGES seems to be a ‘higher calling.”

PS With all the talk in the lounge about buying courses, I just had to buy your CANAVA course today 😀 , and as I looked at the One on One Coaching I was very excited and then experienced some serious ‘sticker shock’ that moved into, “I can’t afford THAT. Kudos for Colleen! She’s worth that and much more! Hmmmmmmmmm….. I wonder if she ever does ‘small group’ coaching that could lead to more intense 1 on 1 coaching…” Then I saw the money course, and thought, hmmmmmmmmmmmmm….. and got my smile back. We’ll start with Canava and the Course Creation I already have… and we’ll see where this 7-day course leads… The clarity by Day 3 is pretty phenomenal, based on the course, lectures and group input! Wooo hooo!

You’re Awesome, and sooooo Smart, yes, we are lucky about your background!

Thanks! See you tomorrow at 11!

DAY 4 – THIS IS A GAMECHANGER

#PassiveIncomePrepSchool Colleen Arneil

Thanks Colleen! Great questions, tiny steps, powerful insights! Saying it out loud (or posting it) brings it into ‘manifestation’… 😀

~~~~~

STEP ONE: 10 POINTS – ATTEND FACEBOOK LIVE AT 11 “chatting about the mindset it takes to makethe passive income flow’

STEP TWO: 10 POINTS – Post and share “YOUR BIGGEST desire is. What are you hoping to make happen with your business? Where do you want to be in 6 months?”

~~~~~~~~

The topics of Workers Compensation Survival and Radiation Survival ‘light me up’ because the Rads are extinction level and the people need to know and because WorkComp is extermination level, and the people need to know — in order to take survival precautions….

I am hoping to create educational ‘products’ that can help me serve an ideal audience, and do so in a way that also helps me to create a revenue flow to serve fiercely, with top tech automation and beautiful, simple to follow and very organized personal development/self-help/Warrior programs…(sort of like how the Passive Income Queen conducts biz! ) 😀

Einstein reminds us that ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the DUTY to act.’ I know. I act.

By or before January 15, 2017, six months today, my “biggest desire’ is to to have a functional organization/business/program, consisting of, but not limited to:

1) One or more TEACHABLE eCourses in WorkComp Survival, and one or more eCourse in understanding & grasping the need to #DodgeTheRads, as it impacts health, & 3+ mainstream media article publications;
2) One or more eBooks on WorkComp Survival and #DodgeTheRads life extension practices with full on opt-in pages & all necessary tech pieces/systems for webinars, and growing database and global reach;
3) Continued blogging on related topics, such as Social Media, TBI and LOEF, helping others ‘connect the dots’ and take right action;
4) An affordable, brilliant, affordable team of experts working with me to produce the above referenced transformational materials/products and related ..and a database of more than 20,000 ‘interested’ parties and co-workers;
5) Social Media Movements of global proportions to provoke further conscious thought and positive transformations

Linda Ayres

Hey! Did you read this yet? Did you join the “Sedgwick Institute” on linked in yet? C’mon, let’s go! The May WorkComp National Discussions are about ready to begin. Here’s my take on it: https://lnkd.in/bR8785Y

What’s YOURS? I will check with Jonathan Mast to see if they will be having a Facebook “Sedgwick Institute” group, I think perhaps a “SI – VENTING ROOM” could prep more Injured Workers to join a mixed group. #TTFN

[In the meantime, we can use a FB public – group place holder at Occupy WorkComp to start organizing and blogging support]

  1. Linda Ayres

    There are only 20 people in the group so far. C’mon. You have something to say? There’s your open door! Carpe Diem! #Blog4Freedom, Life, Liberty and Justice for All! It’s time to restore Civil Rights and Human Rights to Injured Workers NOW.  show less

  2. Linda Ayres

    MyWorkCompCoach.com says “…If you’re an Injured Worker without a blog, you are Unarmed in the War Against Workers. You may be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome and have to add that diagnosis to your list….”  show less

  3. Fonzseau Darren

    I put my request in. Will see.

  4. Linda Ayres

    Yaaaaay Fonzseau Darren! The “Sedgwick Institute” LI Group was 13 members when I joined, and it’s up to 33 now. I don’t imagine that Jonathan Mast or their team of administrators watch it like Hawkes, so let’s hope tomorrow it will reach at least 100 and keep growing.

    We’ll see if Jonathan and team are planning on a FB “Sedgwick Institute – FB Group” of similar guidelines and intention. We can help them build it!

    If so, Injured Workers might be able to create a complimentary group called something like “Si – Injured Workers Venting Room” so Injured Workers can do an unbridled brain dump, to facilitate more facts. ONWARD! We Are The Media Now!

  5. Linda Ayres

    We, who are outside of the system now, could then collectively help re-write the issues without the emotions that go with being a WorkComp Victim, and the related PTSD and [OPIATE] druggings – so that more SIMPLE FACTS can be presented in the SEDGWICK INSTITUTE GROUPS, to be elevated to their actual “Institute” of “INDUSTRY THOUGHT LEADERS”

    We might find some social workers, paralegals and nurses and doctors and lawyers to help us review and re frame the stories so that the “Thought Leaders” can grasp the content. I’m looking for some now. Keep your eyes open, too!

  6. Linda Ayres

    I know Bob Wilson ‘s May ‘National WorkComp Discussions’ does not (yet) embrace Injured Workers input, but maybe he will be inspired by the direction of the Sedgwick Institute Open forums and LinkedIn group.

    Maybe David David DePaolo‘s WorkComp Central will also create a FB group for Injured Workers to help, and then maybe Bob will see the value in Injured Worker Input.

    Maybe Joseph Paduda, Barry Thompson,  Richard FinePeter Rousmaniere, Art Wilcox, Roberto CenicerosThomas F. Martin, Alan Gurvey and others will lend some energy to getting more items on the discussion tables.

  7. Linda Ayres

    Hey! Here’s a thought! Maybe a joint invitation letter from the WC Industry Thought Leaders TO Injured Workers & Taxpayers could open those doors to further discussions, sort of like the letter from Congress to the DOL Secretary.

    EINSTEIN IF I WERE TO REMAIN SILENT

    Of course, investigative reporters would be naturals in such a discussion group, if the intent is to get the truth on the table and identify real problems and create real transformations and resolutions. I still think teams of Mediators and Structured Settlement peeps is a good next step, for any case over 4 years old, particularly if it’s a back or brain injury… w/limits on how long cases can drag on and on.  show less

  8. Linda Ayres

    PS For any LinkedIn peeps also on alternative social media, Facebook, I’m regularly censored from posting in groups, even my own, but I do have access to my pages and events.

    fb censored blocked again from groups 4 27 2016 1143 am   CENSORED FB 4 27 2016 1129 AM

    Let’s connect over there…..We will do what we can to get some serious thinkers to join the Sedgwick Institute linked in group, and any new groups thought leaders open up to embrace injured workers. After all, the though leaders have businesses to ‘lead’ ALL BECAUSE SOMEBODY GOT HURT AT WORK. Let’s all get along and work on solutions now. Thanks

  9. Linda Ayres

    How to find me on FB, and yes, it’s another long story… for another time. The page is “shared” with Lucy Occupy, because she has no papers to show to the FB thought police. https://www.facebook.com/LucyOccupy.311 so after lock outs, the compromise was to share profile space with LucyOccupy — she has her own page though…. and is known and loved in the real anti-nuclear communities — since 2011. show less

.

It took until the summer of 2013 to make it a blog…..the earlier writings were to WorkComp people — doctors, adjusters, lawyers, human resources. Initially, I suspected the poor treatment was simply that some of the people I was dealing with were simply stupid.   I discovered it is far worse than that.

"WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW" #OccupyVirtually
“WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW” #OccupyVirtually  – #DodgeTheRads  

Have you seen the movie, WOMAN IN GOLD?  Here’s the trailer.  I watched it this week.  I cringed and gasped repeatedly as I saw parallels between those atrocities, and the life destroying actions of the WorkCompsters around the nations.  It is time for more Doctor’s Trials, to include the complicit sonderkommando, wouldn’t you agree?

 

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

 

Watch it and see for yourself how the parallels can be drawn with the devastation and destruction by the Nazi’s in the 30’s and similar destruction of life in the 21st century—of disabled workers, older workers and other ‘economically undesirable’ or ‘unprofitable’ members of the working classes.  If you do watch it, pay particular attention to the cheering when the Nazi’s rolled in to Austria, and the terrors that followed and wonder about shareholders of the companies causing such atrocities. Today, they don’t roll in in tanks, it’s the sedans and stretch limos?  Yikes!

 

If you don’t know any Injured Workers and if you are like the ‘cheering crowds’ of the profitable workcomp industries, also take a look at “The First Leaflet” and the next time medical care is denied on your watch, ask about your own humanity and soul.

.

Injured Workers lose their sanity, their jobs, their homes and their lives in the PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business model that provides windfalls of profits, faster upon death of injured workers, to insurance industries and ancillary venues.

WHITE ROSES AND LINKED IN 5 16 2015
Are you #LinkedIn?

It’s thrilling to see that the nation is finally discussing, out loud and virtually, some of the horrific atrocities of WorkComp. No more sugar-coating the atrocities. Enough of you know the real deal.

.

MAY AMERICA LEAD THE WAY TO STOP THESE ATROCITIES…..

We, The People,  Are The Media Now.  “Let’s get right to it!”

.

Wouldn’t it be beneficial and life-extending if…..some of the biggies….. WorkCompCentral + ProPublica + National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers accelerate the discussion WITH AN EMPHASIS CHANGE TOWARD SOLUTIONS?  Enough already with the hand-wringing and rhetoric.

 

If you’re in the industry, Y’all already know what’s happening. DO SOMETHING TODAY.  MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT.  “ADOPT AN INJURED WORKER” AND HELP THEM ESCAPE FROM THE “assembly lines of death” and OPEN AIR DEATH CHAMBERS!

If not you, then who?  If not now, then when?

Go save yourself from the zombies

.

Let’s individually and collectively conduct interviews with doctors, lawyers and others who have “left the industry” so that real issues can be addressed, in a less threatening manner, with, perhaps, some amnesty provisions for early responders.

.

These WorkComp challenges and atrocities are Universal —- perhaps the USA, Canada, UK and Australia have similar organizations — like WorkCompCentral + ProPublica + National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers and everybody can join forces to save/extend lives.

.

We’ll probably need some educational events to address BEST PRACTICES for Whistle Blowing, in all quarters, wouldn’t you agree?

It has been somewhat comforting over the past year to see discussions about the many horrors of WorkComp, along with the high profits for the insurance carriers. Romano Trust Vs. Sedgwick seems to have paved the way for carriers to “wish and hope you die” if you are an injured worker —-it’s an cost effective strategy, in perfect alignment with PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business models, also used by the Nuclear Industries?

.

Here is a study by Everette Lee Herndon, Jr.  on Workers Comp & Bad Faith: Unacceptable Oversights The Insurer’s Duty and The Romano Case. Published on http://www.propertycasualty360.com on July 15, 2013  that will prove insightful to any readers, industry or non-industry.  If you’re human, read it; you’ll get it.

.

A recent DePaolo World blog shared another story with the same trend….. Profit Before People rather than the carrier paying for transitional living facilities at approximately $40K a month, likely with the help of some nasty pharmaceutical, that injured worker’s ‘suicidal ideations’ and attempts could save that carrier a bundle…..  and have “Happy Shareholders”??  Yikes!  See also Guilty Without Charge

.

Well, recently a recommendation from another doctor/coach suggested I write about my WorkComp experiences.  I shyly reported, “Well, I have a little blog already, but I do want to write a book.”   Unimpressed (and previously unaware of my blogs) it was suggested that before our next meeting that I “write an Introduction and a Chapter Outline.”  😀   THIS IS THE INTRODUCTION!   HERE COMES THE OUTLINE!

Did I leave anything out?  Do you think a series of e-books would fly?  Would you read it if it was free?  Would you prefer to pay 99 cents for each e-booklet?  Would you watch a webinar about Whistle Blowing, Blogging, Administrative Tasks for Injured Workers and more?  Would you join groups on the NADIW.org site, LinkedIn, Facebook and elsewhere to further discussion and enhance your own blogs?

Comp Laude Nominees – Michael Grabell – Investigative Reporter, ProPublica

Today is Tuesday, September 15, 2015 –

COMP LAUDE™ AWARDS & GALA – NOMINEE CONFIRMATION

Thank you for taking the time to nominate someone for a Comp Laude™ Award!

Please review the information you have provided:

Nominee type: person
First name: Michael
Last name: Grabell
Title: Investigative Reporter
Employer: ProPublica
Phone: 2125145250
Email: michael.grabell@propublica.org
Category: Medical Comp Laude

Years known: 1 year or less

Accomplishment 1:

As the apparent Lead Investigative Reporter for the team effort of the series on THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION, Michael Grabell has blasted open a Pandora’s box across the nation. His courage, fearlessness, team work and general chutzpah are unparalleled in his profession. The leadership qualities Michael has expressed will surely move his career forward, in many good way, also clearly leading by example so that other Investigative Reports can move forward with telling our friends and neighbors about the atrocities of Workers Compensation in America, so that they can in turn tell theirs. The government already know. Go Michael and Team!

Accomplishment 2:

The professional decorum and adherence to the ProPublica mission statement and Code of Ethics are evident in Michael’s communications and non-communications regarding this incendiary topic called “Workers Compensation”…. May he never need the protection of CPL — The Committee to Protect Journalists — for which Executive Chairman of ProPublica, Paul Steiger, received an award for his contributions. Could Michael be in line for some serious promotions and increased responsibilities? If he is ever in need of support, the entire Workers Compensation industry “owes him” big time, as do Injured Workers across America. To light such a spark of fire for discussions of such atrocities happening in America….IS A VERY BIG DEAL! BRAVO MICHAEL.

Accomplishment 3:

The direction of the series, THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION, is comprehensive and cognitive dissonance producing. The alliance with BEACON to facilitate more journalist to get involved, and divide the labor, is nothing short of Revolutionary. Bravo Michael and Bravo to each of your brave colleagues.

Accomplishment 4:

The call to the Injured Workers’ Communities to hear our stories is an act of compassion, quite foreign in the Workers Comp war zones. Thank you, Michael, for ‘humanizing’ the reporting of domestic torture and terrorism destroying America’s working class—- and writing in such a way that only those most vile of our nation can dispute the facts as presented, and more to come. #InjuredWorkersUniting #SilentNoMore — What a great mouthpiece for the hitherto VOICELESS IN AMERICA!

Why this nominee deserves a Comp Laude™ Award:

“Michael Grabell is deserving of a 2015 Comp Laude Award because he gives a damn about the lives of injured workers in America, and although he has not been asked to give up his life or liberty to investigate and report what too many in the industry already know about, but till now, have only spoken about behind closed doors, in whispers. Not only did he report on some pretty heinous activities across the nation, he didn’t stop there. The cooperative efforts with Howard Berkes of NPR, and the Beacon group for further and on-going investigative reporting may ultimately serve to create a mainstream #CommitteeOfBloggers. May his courage, and that of his colleagues, be duly recognized by the #CompLaude committees and Workers Compensation Industries for the courage, integrity, and patriotism they so eloquently display. In light of what William Casey, former CIA Director, allegedly said in 1981, “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false” it seems that the ProPublica/NPR teams have essentially and mightily joined together to shout and report about Workers Compensation atrocities committed against America’s working classes, with a hearty thought of solidarity along lines of “With all due respect, Sir, in your face! We still have the First Amendment.’ Semper Fi, y’all!
