    The Feds and the Phantom Miners - Posted by Jon Coppelman, Workers Comp Insider
    Every day thousands of people put on their gear and go where none of us would go. They live in constant fear. They never see the sun at work. Even if they survive from shift to shift, they face long-term health hazards. These "ghost workers" move among us, as we turn on the lights, crank up the heat, and log onto the internet. We cannot function without them, but we, in turn, are doing a very poor job of making their work safe and of rewarding them for their sacrifices.
