Held Captive: Employers' Indifference with Work-Related Injuries
Held Captive "Employers' Indifference with Work Related Injuries" relates to thousands of Americans who go to work everyday, working hard and pushing their limits. Many assume that, if an injury happens while "on the clock," their medical needs will be covered. This, however, is not always the case. Consider Alice, a hardworking employee who, one day as she carried out her duties felt a snap in her back-her nightmare began.Author, Melvon Anderson tells of Alice's struggle, as she suffers at the mercy of her employer and endures mistreatment difficulties. Throughout her ordeal, Alice is forced to rethink the ideal that the government takes care of hard-working adults who are injured on-the-job. Instead, she bitterly realizes the injured become victims of the healthcare and Workers' Compensation System. Feeling betrayed in the face of indifference, Alice and others were left to fend for themselves, fighting for both their health and for their justice.
