Government Shutdown Jeopardizes Worker Safety

Government Shutdown Jeopardizes Worker Safety

Are you aware that the government shutdown could seriously harm the health and safety of the American people – according to the director of regulatory policy at the Center for Effective Government?

He talks about OSHA, a government agency that receives approximately 400 to 500 complaints from workers every day. With a government shutdown, the agency cannot protect employees from workplace hazards since many employees are out of work presently.

When the government is in full force, the agency inspects and evaluates more than 350 pollution-emitting facilities every week – ensuring that the air and water are safe. Those inspections have stopped.

It’s very sad when some legislators are basically holding the government’s budget hostage to defund the Affordable Care Act. Instead of bring millions of uninsured Americans into the nation’s health care system we could end up seriously harming the health and safety of the American people.
