The major tactic seems a push to allow these companies to opt out of the mandatory state laws and adopt the company’s own version of a workers’ copmpensation plan. While it would save the companies a lot of money, the employees that would be injured would likely receive less medical treatment and monetary benefits.
My experience is most people do not understand how the workers’ compensation system works until they get injured, then they are suprised at the low amounts of benefits available. If these tactics work, there will probably be even less benefits available. The stockholders win, and the employees lose.
