    Groups say mold in Juneau building is making workers sick - By KORRY KEEKER, Juneau Empire, AK
    Water was rolling in the windows, through light fixtures and pudding on the floor. File cabinets were rusting. 'White-powdery stuff' was accumulating on papers. A co-worker's telephone shorted out.

    That went on for more than a year, until the group was eventually moved to Room 101.

    'People don't have enough money to go south to see a specialist because our health benefits are what they are,' Messing said.

    'There's lots of sickness here, but a lot of people are afraid of retribution from their supervisors,' Messing said. 'There are a lot of people that feel they won't get promoted, or they'll get blackballed. They'd rather be sick.'
