Wow, coming from someone that worked at DRC before, I can attest that the company has already allowed operations on some Saturdays and from reading this, it would appear that those operations were indeed illegal..
I can also attest that some of their other operations are a little up in the air.. While I was working there, a large portion of the time, no one was actually inspecting the material upon arrival at the plant. Also I have read in other articles that haulers have actually said they they spoke to people in the office about loads that may have contained asbestos, and the people in the office said that they could take those products, which I assume was at the expense of more money, more money for the owners pocket that is...
This place is really disgusting in all aspects in hindsight... The home of the devil, so to speak.. I was sent here through a staffing place, and no one warned me or anyone about the the many dangers in this place, and moreover, not only were the workers from the staffing agency paid next to minimum wages (or $8.25 an hr), but a "line foreman" was specifically hired to enforce all workers put forth non stop 110 % work so to speak..
While the need for a better environment is needed, it should be crucial to maintain the standards set forth, and to warn the workers of this place of the many hazards before setting forth in the plant.. Moreover, respirators should be mandatory and given to all workers, and not just the paper masks that I and many other workers were wearing for a good amount of time..
