ProPublica, an independent, non-profit newsroom producing investigative journalism has written an article detailing the disastrous effects of a workers’ compensation system that doesn’t benefit workers. It’s heartbreaking. The article details the real-life consequences of ineffective workers’ compensation systems that have been scaled back over the years.
