    Injuries to All: A human rights report details the gruesome cost of the Bush administration's hostility to workplace safety - By Jamie Daniel, In These Times
    This account of traumatic injury at the workplace is a fairly ordinary situation--the only thing exceptional about it is that Matias' hands were saved. Had this not been the case, or if he had lost the use of his hands over time to repetitive stress, we would know nothing about him. Disabling workplace injuries are now so common in the United States that the thousands of workers who lose their fingers, hands, hearing, sight, mobility--and often their lives--every year remain invisible to most of us. We don't see the human cost of unsafe machines, dangerous production quotas, inadequate safety equipment and exposure to toxic chemicals unless a case like that of Matias catches a reporter's attention.
