Will you fight for injured workers? If not for luck or circumstance, you could be an injured worker. If that was the case wouldn’t you want someone to fight for you?
Taking action is important because, all too often, working people do not have a voice in discussions about changes to the very programs workers depend on. Legislators need to know that working people stand ready to include ideas about how to make the system work better and more efficiently, but workers must come first. Getting injured workers prompt access to the care and wage replacement they need is the priority.
Hopefully you never have to use it, but if you did, wouldn’t you want workers’ compensation to work? This harmful proposal will cut benefits and make the process much more difficult. It will put injured workers second to reform gimmicks.
As sisters and brothers in the Labor Movement we share some core values. Values like “an injury to one is an injury to all.” We must rise to protect those who are most vulnerable - such as injured workers.
If you make your voice heard we can defeat this proposal. But this won’t happen without your help!
