Trump's Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) is Missing in Action While Workers Plead Their Jobs are Killing Them
with
Marcy Goldstein-Gelb co-executive director of the National Committee for Occupational Safety and Health, a national leader in the fight for safe, healthy working conditions and to ensure that all workers can earn their living with dignity and respect and return home alive and well at the end of their shift, and now when faced with the deadly Covid-19 virus.

Even as the federal worker-safety agency has been inundated with Covid-19 complaints, it has rolled back safety standards and virtually eliminated non-health care workplaces from government protection. That poses a serious risk to millions of essential workers, many of whom live paycheck-to-paycheck, safety advocates say. Dozens of workers, including meat cutters, supermarket greeters, airport screeners and bus drivers have died as the disease has spread. Workers are getting sick and dying, and the government agency that they have turned to for 40 years to protect them from everything from chemicals in the workplace to unguarded machines to the H1N1 pandemic has said, Sorry, youre on your own, said Debbie Berkowitz, a former top OSHA policy adviser now at the worker-oriented National Employment Law Project.
