Workers, Bosses Aren't Reporting Workplace Injuries

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

A new report by the Government Accountability Office says many employers and workers aren't reporting injuries that happen on the job. The report calls into question data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which is responsible for compiling numbers on workplace injuries. New York Times labor and workplace reporter Steven Greenhouse tells us why these injures are going unreported. Greenhouse is also the author of "The Big Squeeze: Tough Times for the American Worker."
