I hope every member of mgt there can sleep at night knowing they are responsible for providing such a hole to work in! Too bad OSHA doesn't have the power to jail these incompetent people for about 20 years.

As much as I hate getting the federal government involved in private enterprise, in this case I think it's needed.

Look for this company to pack up and move lock, stock, and barrel to China in the near future.
OSHA is only part of uncompetitive labor costs that have driven American manufacturing out of the country. President Nixon signed OSHA into law as well as affirmative action. Affirmative action laws are also extremely expensive as a labor cost. Add environmental laws, workmen's compensation costs, Social Security costs, & unemployment insurance costs.
Red China does not have these labor costs yet they are allowed to import goods manufactured to the US. China has taken our jobs, they have taken our profits, and they don't pay high American taxes that US companies are faced with.
No wonder US unemployment is now at an all time record high. It won't get better but it will get worse.

Boy oh boy. People read a news breif and are suddenly experts at what happened. What you see here is typical of medium sized businesses that are just not up on the rules. The issues will be taken care of and things will be better moving forward. I have worked in many places and none of them would pass an inspection. Im all for safety but to say there should be 20 years of jail time because a worker that was trained not to put his hand in a machine did it anyway is over the top.
