Here is a report from south of the border. In some things, its good to be 10 years behind the States. Unfortunately, our provincial governments are trending in the same direction.
Here is a link to a study released today by ProPublica, an independent investigative news group in the U.S. It is a summary of a state by state study of changes to workers compensation 2000-2014. They conclude that there has been a systematic and purposeful dismantling of the compensation system by employers and conservative politicians, mostly at the expense of the most seriously disabled workers.
It combines a “big picture” analysis with personal stories. It is an important document, naming what has happened over the last 10-15 years and even though we know it all too well, it is still shocking.
Ontario Doesn’t have to go this route.
