    Workers Deserve a Safe Workplace, Real Enforcement - SOURCE Change to Win
    The following is a statement by Greg Tarpinian, Executive Director of Change to Win, on Workers' Memorial Day and the Protecting America's Workers Act:

    "The Occupational Safety and Health Act was enacted to assure a safe and healthy workplace, but nearly four decades later, we're far from fulfilling that promise for America's workers. The Protecting America's Workers Act introduced today on the eve of Workers' Memorial Day by Sens. Edward Kennedy and Patty Murray and Rep. Lynn Woolsey, is an important first step towards truly guaranteeing workers' safety on the job."
