The one guy is paralyized, so if it was the fault of the company then he should be compensated for his loss.

Tom Lazore most certainly is paralyzed, he has no feeling in his legs, maybe it will get better but for now he is paralyzed. Stop talking out your @ss.

more wonders ALCOA has bestowed upon us:

For over sixty years the reactive chemical and highly poisonous substance fluoride has been touted to communities, the publicity cloaked in good intentions. The message has been:“Poor folks’ teeth need a quick fix to assure they enjoy the benefits of healthy teeth, just like rich folks. Fluoride is the ticket.”

The fluoride campaign began in the late 1930s and continues to this day. It was hatched at the highest levels of Alcoa, the aluminum mining and smelting corporation. Fluoride is a waste product produced during aluminum processing and requires special handling and disposal. Treating it as a hazardous material is expensive and eroded Aloca’s bottom line.

Today, Alcoa has been joined by US Steel, DuPont, Alcan, Reynolds Metals, Kaiser Aluminum, Allied Chemical, and the Florida phosphate fertilizer industry. Each contributes a share of the 155,000 tons of fluoride waste sold to municipal water systems nationwide. The operation is so sophisticated that its influence extends to academia, media, and government.

The net result is that three generations of Americans have been used as industrial waste filters. The vast majority of fluoride is then dumped into the environment via water treatment outfalls. In the case of Fairbanks, the chemical waste ends up in the Tanana River.

Yes today, I'm thinking that is a good sign. If they thought his condition was a lost cause they wouldn't have sent him so far away, they would have just sent him somewhere local. Let's pray he recovers fully, he is such a good guy.

You sit there and move the overhead crane. There's metal rails to protect you. People do break the safty rules. Alcoa is very safty minded. The workers have a lot of safty meetings and are trained to work safely. But accidents do happen everywhere. You could slip on ice in a parking lot.
