Worker, WCB continue compensation battle for 30 years
- By Lana Haight, The Saskatoon StarPhoenix, Canada
An injured Saskatoon man off work for more than 30 years and addicted to pain medication paid for by the Workers' Compensation Board can't believe the board expects him to find a job.
'I would be a danger to myself and others,' said Ron Lewis, who takes several doses of prescribed morphine each day.
'No employer in his right mind would dare to employ a person this medicated.'
