Unions put focus on workplace safety
Labor unions observe Worker's Memorial Day as a way to remember workers who have been injured or killed on the job. A memorial service was held outside the Labor Temple in Duluth and a tree was planted in honor of those workers who were injured and killed on the job. This year focused on the life and work of Kelsey Hagenson, 18, who was killed in a forklift accident on the Bong Bridge between Duluth and Superior last September. Labor advocate Ed Kranz, 68, who died suddenly last November was also honored.
If you’ve ever suffered a difficult injury, you know that even small tasks can be hard. Running errands, buying groceries or going to the bank can be nearly impossible. A new law, recently passed by the Minnesota State legislature, can help those who are receiving workers’ comp benefits cross one more task off the list.
