New Injured Workers’ Political Group to Kick off Calif. Campaign for Voters Injured at Work

January 14, 2005

A new California political group to fight for the rights of voters injured on the job,, announced this week that will kick off its campaign to organize injured workers with a series of news conferences on Jan. 19 protesting the loss of their rights, care, and compensation.

“Hundreds of thousands of voters are injured at work each year, yet have no political voice,” said Mark Hayes, president of the new non-profit political organization of injured workers and their families. “We were injured in the service of our employers and California as a whole. We demand the medical care and compensation guaranteed us in the Constitution. The governor and Legislature harmed us worse than our on-the-job injuries by taking away our rights. We are going to fight back, and we will go after those politicians who scapegoat injured workers. Today is the beginning of an effort to organize tens of thousands of voters injured at work to elect our friends and punish our enemies.” announced that it would sponsor a statewide protest at the Regional Workers’ Compensation Appeals Boards on Wednesday, Jan. 19. The group plans to protest at State Sen. Charles Poochigian’s office in Fresno too.
