McWane, Capitalism, and Safety

Wednesday, March 5, 2008

I just finished watching a PBS Frontline special on McWane, called “A Dangerous Busniess: Revisited.”  In the documentary Frontline found the McWane willfully violated OSHA safety regulations in order to turn a profit.  The workers of McWane didn’t matter, all that mattered was recruiting new meat in order to operate the machinery in order to create more steel pipes in order to create more profit in order to enrich the philanthropic McWane family of Birmingham, AL.

Much of the documentation of McWane was from 1995 to around 2003 in where nine workers died and possibly hundreds were injured, many of them seriously, due to the profit driven nature of McWane management.
