Another words, it would be more effective to fine up to fifty percent of the company’s net worth. That way it would really give companies a reason to give a fuck about their workers.

Seems like the reasonable solution for these companies is to invest more into automation. Not exactly what most people want to hear but it's likely where these types of work are heading.

@Beck Cetera I'm talking about a solution for the company, not for the workers or society as a whole. Overall automation leads to greater total productivity so it has a net benefit to production of goods for human consumption. Now coming up with a more equitable method of wealth distribution is a whole other issue outside of this.

Not when you consider basic economics. For your "reasonable solution" to work, there would have to be new jobs available for displaced workers (with the same job requirements and qualifications - remember these are workers who don't have the education credentials that would be recognized for higher-skilled work opportunities) as the economy relies on employed people to spend part of their income on purchasing goods. Basically, you would have to create new minimum wage jobs and this is not a realistic solution since companies have been outsourcing these types of jobs as it is too expensive to build and run a new minimum wage workplace (ie. a factory) in North America.

How is that an option for someone who's immigration status relies on them being employed or for someone who lives in an area that doesn't have other job opportunities? These people don't have the luxury to stand up for their rights because they cannot legally and/or financially afford to lose a day of pay.

Using the “we are a family” term on a workplace is emotional manipulation tactics. Criminals do it too. Saying we all family in this money life funding situation called work. Don’t fall for it. Especially co-workers that like to refer to you as a relative like brother/sister son/daughter whatever. Titles like that on non-relatives should take years and or some significant life-impacting events to build. The ppl that put those titles on you do so as a way to emotionally control you, forcing you to be loyal, so when they mess up you think twice about reporting them or you feel compelled to cover for them. If someone you barely know well start using that family terminology, think first “did I do enough of anything to earn that from them? Did this person skip over friend and go straight to family?” Suspect! Also, another manipulation tactic, someone you barely know start revealing their secrets. Like really, we worked for 1month and you trust me? They do this so you fall for it and open up about your life. Cops do this shit when interrogating suspects. Offering up something that is worthless to them but you perceive it as valuable and think “wow this person really trusts me and opens up to me. I should reciprocate it seems safe” NOPE! And they be the same ppl quick to accuse you of “having a wall up”. Fucking mind games. My response is, “why do you think you privy to be let over that wall?”

Organize and unionize! That goes for workers all across the country. "The Market" will never regulate itself. When the federal and state governments cut funding for inspection agencies, they won't be able to make inspections. And when the governments make laws that prohibits inspections, and when the fines are equivalent of us paying 0.0002 cents for parking tickets, you know that the system is broken. Such working conditions, in which people get badly hurt on a daily basis, are appalling! You know how politicians and everyone keeps saying that the US is the greatest, freest and most democratic country in the world? That's simply and absolutely not true. It's the greatest for those who have money, who can buy cheap labour, without a second thought given to workers' safety and well being. You are disposable. You need to organize and unionize!

It is disgusting. And it's all a result of our reliance on employment for survival income creating a lever for employers to exploit workers. Go through the issues presented in this video and ask yourself, how much of this would be happening if people had a #UBI providing enough to meet their basic needs, unconditionally? Would these workers put up with this treatment? Or would they refuse such working conditions, because they can afford to, thus forcing the employers to do better? Regulations can only ever mitigate the problems created by poverty. Only eliminating poverty entirely solves these issues and so many more.
