"A little blood mixed into the mortar ain't really gonna hurt things! I've got a business to run that creates jobs for these people"! ..........This may be the attitude of some sleazy builders. But, any "lawmaker" who becomes a "lobbyist" for developers by seeking to "relax" the standards for "legal recourse" of an injured worker is pure scum! Many work sites are riddled with dangerous conditions that violate the building code. Don't take away any of the rights that labor has fought and died for 100 years ago!
