In January of 2013 my husband was killed in a workplace incident in Regina Saskatchewan. But he was far from just my husband, and far from just an employee. He was a father, a son, a brother, an uncle, a grandson, a friend, a co worker, he was a human being. He was a tax payer, he was a home owner, he was a patient, he was a union member, he was a worker, his very existence was relevant, in one way or another, to everybody. This movement is relevant to everybody whether you go to work or not. People you care about do. It is important the every person knows that the systems in place to help them and to protect them and to keep them safe are flawed, not regularly enforced and have been cut back to the point of being unable to function. This is not a political issue, this is not somebody else’s problem, this is a reality for every person. I never imagined it would happen to me, and nobody does. But it can, in a split second. The goal of this group is to organize a movement that is led by the people, and for the people. To create a voice that is so loud it can no longer be ignored. To put a face to workplace injury and fatalities. To raise awareness, to find support, and to most importantly fight for our fundamental rights as a collective body of human beings.
2 Corinthians 6 9:10 The world ignores us, but we are known to God, we live close to death, but here we are, still very much alive. We have been injured but kept from death. Our hearts ache, but at the same time we have the joy of the Lord. We are poor, but we give rich spiritual gifts to others. We own nothing, and yet we enjoy everything.
*Justice for Saskatchewan, Injured / Disabled Workers* “WCB Employees Paid to Commit Fraud” “Denied Medical / Rehabilitation Benefits by WCB” The Historic Meredith Agreement in which WCB was founded has been twisted like a pretzel to deny injured workers benefits of medical care / lost wages, after suffering workplace injury. In the summary documents, prepared by Board services, and used in Board Members Judicial Appeal Hearing, I found falsified medical reports / complete lies. How can you receive a fair hearing when WCB employees place falsified and fabricated lies, to deliberately con-volute / misconstrue, your claim? Enough is Enough, It’s obvious the WCB “Road to Zero” is in reality a road to zero, benefits; How is it possible, all 3 of my MRI scans were not properly evaluated? 2 scans at University Hospital, radiologists- Dr. Derek Fladeland, Dr. Brent Burbridge, Dr. Stephan Kriegler all missed; Herniated Disc’s / Annular Disc tears / Traumatic endplate fractures; Facet Injuries; Spinal Stenosis; It’s as plain as the nose on your face; WCB Saskatchewan, is; Medical Legal Insurance Fraud; Racketeering; Designed to contain costs, at the expense, of the injured worker / family. In 1998, Gordon Scrimbit, was told by Wascana Rehab, he would never work again, WCB’s answer; ” While we do not disagree with the diagnosis, we do not see how this could be so”. In other words the evidence was totally disregarded. Recently WCB placed a contract out for bid for a new computer program; est: cost of $20 Million; WCB received their new computer program which cost over $30 Million dollars: Yet Injured Workers are being denied medical treatment requested by physicians for diagnosis / treatment. If you are a injured or disabled worker who wants to join this WCB, “Class Action Lawsuit” please send a request, this facebook group is PRIVATE, (However WCB likely will see all members eventually) Many Others Just like Yourselves, MUST, take this first step, and place your name on the lawsuit; We will hold 3 meetings, after the 3 meetings we will file the lawsuit in Court of Queens Bench; We are contacting several competent Law Firms; As a group, the choice of which Law Firm will handle the Lawsuit, must be voted on. Sincerely Bruce Junker

Hello my internet angels, welcome to my page. Happy New Year, and may you all have the greatest life journey ever! I made a promise to myself this year, after receiving my Counseling diploma with “Honors,” in December 2014,’ that I would once again become a part of this beautiful world. I am becoming visible, and break my thirty-year silence regarding the misdiagnosis, that led to the medical madness, and the horrendous problems I have had to experience, still experience as an injured worker dealing with the Workers Compensation System and the Canadian medical system. I am proud to say that understanding human behavior has given me an edge over everything in my life.. I have found my way out of the darkness we are pushed into by our injuries, depression, injustice and dealing the small mindedness of the adjudicators on our case. And my greatest wish for this year, is that the more injured workers that come out of hiding and break their silence, tell their stories and their experiences since becoming an injured worker. Tell how the medical community treats us. A system that is supposed to protect and help us, but in my case, and the cases of many, are ignored, misdiagnosed. I would spend the rest of my life dealing with nerve damage and a multitude of other problems only because of ignorance. My experiences of being implanted with medical devices that help control pain. Gave me my life back, but, only caused further injuries, and issues, losses, as well as more problems when they malfunctioned, electrocuting me internally, paralyzing my body, until my co-workers unplugged the device from the transmitter, saving my life, bringing me down and back into the unjust Workers Compensation System. Machines that are put in people’s bodies to help control pain that go ignored, unmonitored by the Workers Compensation Board that purchased these devices, as well as the surgeon’s who implanted these devices, and the manufacturer who never warned me of the consequences of being internally electrocuted. And I was I ever sent a letter telling me my device was obsolete and needed replacing. The more stories we hear, the more people that stand up in the face of adversity, the quicker we will see changes because these stories could be yours…..or that of your loved ones….Don’t let this be their experience. It’s time to SHATTER THIS SILENCE. I hope that my story and the poetry God blessed me with the ability to write will provide support, inspiration, and information to those who need it. It’s only when we all break our silence, that changes happen. We need to shatter the silence with louder voices, break the patterns, and labels, and take our lives back. Because, only in doing so, will our future, the status quo won’t impact our children’s future. We set out on a road of dreams, to only have another person derail us and that won’t continue……my life is worth it…. God Bless Giggles the Poet

The Joint Task Force on Rehabilitation for the Injured Worker was established in 1983 to provide an educational forum and promote better communication between professionals regarding rehabilitation services for the Maryland injured worker. The founding members recognized that the Workers’ Compensation Community needed specialized knowledge and skills. The purpose and goal of the Task Force is to identify the skills and knowledge that are needed to assist and equip professionals in providing successful services for Maryland injured workers. Conferences, workshops and written material (The Good Practice Manual and other educational materials) provide the forum to present this information. These forums bring together the Workers’ Compensation Community which includes claims representatives, physicians, rehabilitation counselors, attorneys, nurses and therapists. For this reason the membership consists of 15 organizations and associations representing the wide variety of entities directly involved in workers’ compensation. Each member organization or association appoints representatives to serve on the Task Force. The Task Force is a standing committee of the Maryland Rehabilitation Association (MRA) and Chesapeake Association of Rehabilitation Professionals in the Private Sector (CARPPS).

Petition to improve service provided to injured workers and allow treating physichians to decide what work their patient is suitable to complete. “YOUR DOCTOR HAS AN OPINION BUT IS NOT IN A PLACE TO DECIDE WHAT WORK IS SUITABLE FOR YOU!”-WSIB case manager
Injured workers suffer terribly on the workcover system. The system devalues and dehumanises injured workers. The system is unfairly biased against injured workers. Worse still, more cuts to entitlements are being proposed by the government. Injured workers and those who care about injured workers are most welcome to join the group, share experiences and gain support from others in the same situation.
Each and every one of us suffers a workplace injury at some point in our lives. It is not only a physical experience but an emotional and financial one as well. We trust that WCB is going to asssit us throughout the whole injury but that is not always the case. We want to hear your stories. Do you beleive that WSNB needs to be revamped? Do you beleive that their policies and procedures are for the injured worker? Do you feel well treated by your case manager? have you been threatened to have your finances cut off if you dont comply with your case managers decisions of how your care should be? Share with us your ideas and experiences…its time for a change.
This is a group for the injured workers Wcb of Alberta didn’t pay, WCB Alberta is an Insurance company that Denies as many claims as possible. denying claims and proper medical care saves them money. injured workers are a liability and therefore need to be removed from the system as soon as possible. the so called appeal process is a sham… the appeal board is on the payroll of WCB. Independant Medical Exams are conducted by Doctors on the the WCB payroll and these Doctors are taught to lie and decieve as a matter of common WCB practice. WCB does not lose in Court, they have endless resources and will use the most underhanded tactics available.
Injured workers that have been messed around by Workers Compensation either by LMR or by not receiving the proper payout that they deserve. We have worked hard to support our families, we did not ask to get hurt on the job, and now that we have, we have no job and no rights.
This is to show people how many of us have been bullied by insurance companies. Since the change of the workers compensation ACT by the O’Farrell government, workers are being kicked off the books unfairly another one for the multi nationals who only want money money money……
This group is for injured workers involved with WSIB. You can share your thoughts, experiences, stories, issues, whatever you are comfortable sharing. This is a group for support and advice. This is a SAFE place, no DRAMA or NASTINESS, will be tolerated.
I would like to hear about your experience with the system what your injury was and if you are working again or pensioned if your an attorney how do you get thru this process? need answers to alot of question’s, I have an appeals hearing coming up soon.
This group is a place where people of all race, color, or beliefs can come together to compare and or share their horror stories they have aquired at the hands of A.I.G. And any other insurance with an adjuster that can only say “NO” to treatment prescribed by your primary treating physician.
Organization of people affected by negative WCB tactics that are looking for change.. Injured workers for a “present day” WCB system for future people who have to deal with injury at work. Share info, stories and bad (wrong) decisions that need to be made known.
Our Mission Statement: “To promote fair and equitable compensation for injured workers in Canada, to address the mistreatment of injured workers and to voice the common concerns of injured workers across Canada.”
For anyone disabled on the job, recovering from your injury is a long, hard road but how long is it really? What happens if many years down the road you develop complications from your work related injury? Do you know what your rights are…..Until it happened to us, we had no idea. Here you’ll have a support network of injured workers who have become severely disabled because their rights were violated by Carriers more intersted in saving money than providing care for the serious complications that arise from WC claims awarded years earlier.

It is my goal to make it federally mandated that Police Officers and Fireman receive 100% of their pay when injured in the line of duty. On May 16, 2005 my husband was seriously injured in the line of duty while attempting to pull someone over on his departmental motorcycle. Due to someone elses negligence and failure to yield to his lights and siren he was involved in the accident and injured. After 5 1/2 years he is still dealing with injuries from the accident. At the time of the accident he was a Sgt. He has since been promoted to Lieutenant and subsequently is at a higher pay level. He will be undergoing a hip replacement in March. We will recieve 65% of his pay that he was receiving when the accident occured.
This group is private and only people from the project will be invited … We have set this group up to stay in touch and provide information and resources to you from time to time … Please make use of this group to ask any questions of the SA Unions staff … We hope you will make use of this forum and stay in touch so we can see if our work with you is sustainable 🙂 Enjoy …..

After a post on the Sunny Coast Community Board by Stuart Field asking who would employ someone with limited ability and on pain medication a lot of interesting chatter eventuated and this page was subsequently born. It is a program in motion currently looking to bring together as many injured Sunshine Coast Workers as possible for a free flowing brain storming session to document our joint challenges and triumphs and to collaboratively build a network of people and information to assist injured workers both now and in the future. We invite you to take part in something that we believe has the power to change broken lives for the better. Join us here today.
Educate the general public and injured workers on policies and new initiatives of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board and also the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act. Maintain a resource library of useful information on WSIB and Health issues. Increase community awareness of the issues affecting injured workers. Provide referrals to other community services where needed. Promote education for workers to eliminate work place injuries.
Without Prejudice When a worked like my self simone gets injured in the work place like Winners Homesence It is employers duity that the injued worker gets everything they need to get healthy again not kick them to the street and say we just have no room to deal with this and try to close the book on it and think they can get away with it. Please join my group and help me stop this from happening to another injured worked anywhere and also to make winners understand that they will not get away with this.
This is for Ohio workers whom have been injured on the job. If you have an open workers comp claim here in Ohio, no matter if you have been off work cause of the injury or you are back to work. Just as long as your claim is open we want to help you get your rights back. As an injured worker you have to go to the IC court to fight for treatment or to receive money that is owed to you. We are trying to get laws passed so that you can get treatment and all things u need to get your life back to the best of YOUR ABLITY.. This is being funded by a doctor that works as a doctor in the workers comp industry. He feels the injured worker deserves more rights and that’s what we are trying to get for you…
The current WSIB and its employers are using publicly funded agents such as ODSP to dump cleints that were injured ,while on the job.The current claim denial rate is close to 50 %.If we are going to have a system that is adverserial then I want the right to sue my employer.

“Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
“Assignment: Give us a few thoughts on how you would have gone about re-imagining and executing a project we did last year about the demolition of worker’s comp protections around the country. Again, how could we have connected to the people actually impacted by the story, and how could they have contributed to the project?”
“Here’s that [AWARD WINNING AND INDUSTRY SHAKING] investigation:
“We are hiring an engagement reporter to work on investigative projects in collaboration with traditional reporters throughout the full life-cycle of projects. That means you’ll be involved from the very beginning of story conception to think about what communities and audiences we need to reach and how we reach them, all the way through to story publication and beyond. You’ll help find and reach an audience for the story, and most importantly you’ll be responsible for conceiving and executing a plan to pull our readers into the reporting of the story itself….”
“…So what exactly are we talking about? Take a look at a project we’ve been doing about Vietnam vets exposed to Agent Orange. [*] Unlike traditional investigations, we didn’t start with a story. We announced that we were doing an investigation with a callout to the community. We asked vets to tell us their stories, and we’ve now heard from more than 5,800 of them. This community has fueled our reporting, and it’s already getting results.”
“We also plan to do more projects where we work openly with and help foster communities of journalists.”
Encore time for #WorkersCompensation continued investigations of further INSULTS TO INJURIES and The Demolition of Workers’ Comp, including what happens post settlement … to 8.9 million Americans on #SSA disability…? And who knows how many millions denied SSA disability –more than 40 million more?
SIDE BAR: And why would a congressional representative suggest taking constituent complaints to legal aid vs DOJ and fail to get involved and get straight answers to a simply inquiry for a statement of income used by SSA to mis-calculate retro-active pay benefits for over 15 months, with wildly fluctuating misrepresentation of monies due vs overpaid from an initial award amount of $25,591 to false allegations of overpayments calculated multiple times, ranging from the first being $27,078.00 sliding down to low $20k’s, to $11,767, then $9,964, then $5,555.10, then $22,869, then $21,066.20 ad infinitum.
Multiple Illegal interruptions and further threats of interruptions of benefits during “appeals” process were corrected, but the benefits due, when paid from arrears, WE ALSO THEN ADDED TO THE MIS-CALCULATION AMOUNT OF OVER-PAYMENT. Figure that one out. Do they drug test at SSA?
Those SSA miscalculations also subject the Injured Worker to litigation from the Long Term Disability carrier, based on the initial retro-pay award, with the LTD demands for repayment of approximately $22,000, which they boast “the Courts routinely find in our favor.” All these crazy numbers are based on SSA falsely stating that income from date of injury paid by the WC carrier was $4,177.00 —- They won’t prove it and they simply ignore repeatedly provided evidence of the actual WC and EDD payments. MAGIC MATH– SSA MAKES THINGS UP WITH YOUR TAX DOLLARS….
The refusal of SSA to even provide such information in a Congressional inquiry is very suspicious, and the months and months of clear obfuscation of facts and obstruction of justice are really sad, wouldn’t you agree? This is another known national dilemma, scandal and shame…!! SSA was called out for paying Nazi War criminals over 20 million dollars, illegally, last year. Apparently, their practices of MAGIC MATH, with a splash of ‘abracadabra’ with facts and evidence, are known to most anybody touched by THAT system.
Word from the Ten Congressional Representatives who signed the October 2015 letter is hopefully anticipated soon, as they each received a copy of case evidence in the issue references above. Acting SSA Commissioner has also received a complete package, and certain Media influencers have also been provided with copies of same. It’s been less than 30 days… Word is expected soon. Hopefully, a good word of correction and accuracy so that piece can be settled and closed. [See earlier blogs for more details if SSA is on your bucket list of fixes needed.]
Another Injured Worker recently connected with an apparently “similar story” that has been being fought for over 12 years.
“SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION – ISN’T IT?”
O SAY CAN YOU SEE, #AMERICANS?!?
AUSTRALIANS, CANADIAN, UK and other INJURED WORKERS FACE VERY SIMILAR LIFE-THREATENING and DESTROYING INSULTS AND INJURIES that Americans face with the current Workers’ Compensation and Disability mega billion dollar PROFITS BEFORE LIVES systems, agencies and carriers….WITHOUT REPRESENTATION by enough elected officials.
How about investigations into the plights and gruesome illness and death of America’s #Nuclear Workers? Relate them to the plights and gruesome illness and deaths, with quite little ‘plausible deniability,’ of Fukushima’s nuclear workers and relate that to the issues of Your Radiation This Week, Americans. “Radiation in the US Soars”
In addition to the 10 Congressional representatives who signed the letter of October 2015, incited by INSULT TO INJURY investigative reports to the Department of Labor about the state of Workers’ Compensation and the offer to provide law enforcement and protection, if needed, was quite a gift to the American people, but follow up is absolutely required.
There is also a small group of Congressional representatives who are also concerned and outraged about the treatment of sick Nuclear Workers in the USA, and denials of medical care and benefits. Time to get these Congressional representatives talking together and working with one another, and also taking some hard looks into the Social Security Administrations mis-handling of millions of claims and dollars, causing further egregious harm to America’s class.
SHARE THE JOB POST WITH YOUR SMART #FRIENDS, #NEIGHBORS, #VETERANS, #TBI SURVIVORS, #WORKcomp SURVIVORS AND #SSA MALFEASANCE SURVIVORS …..and others ITK about #FUKUSHIMA, #YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK, ELE etc.
MAKE SURE THEY HAVE A POOL OF LEGIT TRUTH SEEKERS TO DRAW FROM….
Remember Remember… “Without a blog and a growing database, Injured Workers are Unarmed and Unprotected in the War on Workers.”
For a little more perspective from and about some citizens IMPACTED by the need for The Demolition of Workers’ Compensation:
Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains– list of posts since Summer 2013 [update: The parties in the initial WorkComp case “reached resolution subject to confidentiality agreement” in less than 5 years, without benefit of competent legal counsel and other significant obstacles, by winter 2015. The blog now addresses more national and international issues, and is not case-specific.
My WorkComp Coach is a natural result of an in pro per/in pro se (unrepresented) Injured Worker Survivor’s need to GIVE BACK to the Injured Worker Community to share strategies and tactics to survive and escape the WorkComp system of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES.
Personal rebranding efforts are somewhat hindered by the magnitude and reach of the insurance industry propaganda machinery, and it’s approximately “Top 22 Blogger” mouth-pieces skewing public opinions in further efforts to protect profits and recover from the initial investigative reports by ProPublica and NPR.
“Something is terribly wrong with Worker’s Compensation – isn’t it?”
I would love to apply for the position at ProPublica, but alas, as a Survivor of Workers’ Compensation, the doctors say I can never work again, due to the challenges of the traumatic brain injury sustained at work in 2012, same year as Hillary. I study online business and education practices in hopes to prove those doctors wrong!!! So far, not so good, but I keep trying! My, what a difference private doctors vs. workcomp doctors can make in recovery outcomes, huh?
How many injured American workers may have had better and faster outcomes if WorkComp did not exist, but employee benefits with a State disability as ‘first responders’ was employed as a first line of defense against permanent disabilities, and having WorkComp insurance as a secondary insurer, in the event of catastrophic and irreparable injuries?? WorkComp is NOT an employee benefit. ANYWHERE.
My blogging is a public service activity. I can do more a la Arianna Huffington’s ideas that include the importance of NAPPING AT WORK.
(Arianna didn’t really say that Three Mile Island and Chernobyl Nuclear Disasters were due to ‘sleep deprivation’ as I read in Success magazine, did she? “Fatigue –related.” [WTH!!!]
“Mar 10, 2015 – It’s fitting, then, that Arianna Huffington’s latest book is a discourse on achievement and health. … and the nuclear accidents at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl? … According to Harvard Medical School, sleep deprivation costs U.S. … Time magazine had just named her one of the 100 most influential people …”
“…What we overlook is the staggering toll all that nonstop hustle takes on us. That commuter train derailment that killed four and injured more than 60 outside New York City in 2013? It was caused by an engineer who nodded off at the wheel. The Exxon Valdez oil spill, the Challenger space shuttle disaster, and the nuclear accidents at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl? All fatigue-related…”
Heck, if Hillary can run for President with suspected Brain Injury, Radiation poisoning and Seizures, maybe I actually could apply for the ProPublica Engagement Reporter position…. if they could make an ADA accommodation and let me be of some help …. VIRTUALLY, FROM THE LEFT COAST…. High Desert, anyway.
I would love to see continuing investigations into the national hyper-corruption issues of Workers Compensation. 2015 reports were stellar, but just the tip of the iceberg. More importantly is to find ways to get people quickly out of the system, and on to real doctors and medical care, healing and recovery and the path to return to work.
I would also love to some immediate investigations of the appearance of serious mis-deeds by the Social Security Administration when it comes to benefits for Injured Workers. In most cases, MAKING STUFF UP and refusing to correct errors in income calculations, in order to deny benefits to injured workers and deploy profits to who knows whom, is generally referred to with the f-word. FRAUD and MALFEASANCE. Injured Workers call it “MAGIC MATH” of Social Security; SSA workers call it ‘too confusing and hard’ and apparently Congressional Representatives call it ‘too hot to touch.’ Hmmmmm.
I would would also like to see that small group of “22 Top Bloggers” held accountable for speaking the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. If a CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION is required to facilitate that, then, Congress knows what they must do.
MEANWHILE, A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE FACEBOOK INJURED WORKER KAMPS AND GHETTOS is being organized for the LinkedIn interested parties, and other parties apparently not in the know about the atrocities of America’s WorkComp programs. Watch for it. It was derailed temporarily while some Injured Workers were under national ‘attack’ by some industry spokes people starting in May. It seems to have simmered down, or is in another calm before another storm.
Maybe I COULD provide some ideas to the ProPublica team as they come together? Maybe they will just read my blogs and get some ideas; a few industry training department people have been regular views on LinkedIn and a few are subscribers. ‘STREET TALK’ they prefer to call hyperbole or ‘angry injured workers with an ax to grind’ rather than deal with the harsh realities of a predatory and dangerous system politely called WORKERS COMPENSATION.
I’m getting a little professional help to update and “rebrand” to better represent “The New Me” [post TBI] my social media presence, so, we’ll see what happens between now and the deadline, SEPTEMBER 5, 2016 — LABOR DAY IN THE USA.
“These cases, though, are real. There are real people behind these cases. People get hurt. People get toyed with. People don’t get what is needed, what is promised in the Grand Bargain, and set aside as disturbed and having unrealistic expectations.
Some contact me because of this blog, seeking answers, help and remedies.
I have met some – like Linda Ayers. I won’t get into Linda’s case here – that’s not the point.
Linda is vocal, like a few other injured workers. She has a blog, she is active in social media, she posts comments to this blog.
And she probably drives the defense crazy as she is prolifically passionate about making sure the system works for her and for other injured workers.
It’s easy to dismiss Linda’s activities as the rantings of an unstable person, but she is not an unstable person. She is a person who’s case spiraled out of control from the beginning, and we know that the early stages of a claim are the most critical…”
In 2015, at the commencement of the national diatribes attacking Injured Workers, in ASSUME RESPONSIBLITY by David, we were called “Vociferous Militants” and just complainers, amongst other choice words.
Draft one of that blog, ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY, actually was sent to me as a personal email, and it was not till a while later that I realized that many of the several little blue links linked directly to my little blogs! Was he really trying to tell YOU something by linking to MY BLOGS?
“However, there’s a vociferous militant minority of the injured worker population who have made it their mission to inform the world of the injustices imparted on them by “the system” and all its nefarious participants.
They have ridiculed most all work comp sectors named above, but have spared me for the most part. “
No apparent respect for the fact that I survived and that the parties in my personal case ‘reached resolution’ miraculously in less than 5 years, that even wrapped up with a nice ‘best wishes’ note from one of the defense attorneys involved. David’s death leaves a gap in the industry discussions about the Pro’s, Cons and WorkCompsters of the Industry. The fight for his role as ‘Top Dog’ is… pitiful to watch. David actually care about Injured Workers and let his readers know that, and he walked a very fine line. The other ‘top bloggers’ with just a very exceptions… not so much.
Earlier this year there was what appeared to be a full scale, organized national disparaging attack on a small segment of the vocal Injured Workers in the USA, very few who blog. It’s unclear who directed it, but Injured Workers have their suspicions. Industry peeps probably know for sure. The above blogs were included in several of the diatribes, directly and indirectly.
IF YOU KNOW SOME PEOPLE WHO MIGHT BE A PERFECT FIT FOR THAT PRO-PUBLICA POSITION, LET THEM KNOW. IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S IN NEW YORK CITY….. I lived there in a ‘former life’ on 72nd between Park and Madison, working as a secretary to a powerful … ‘real estate mogul.’
