Study Finds Union Mines Safer

Ken Ward Jr. reports on a new study from Stanford University law professor, Alison D. Morantz, which found a "substantial and significant decline in traumatic mining injuries and fatalities" at underground mines where workers were members of the United Mine Workers union. 

The report was published last week by the John M. Olin Program in Law and Economics at Stanford.

So let's get this straight... mines that pay closer attention to worker safety and values their workers are safer than those that put corporate profits and production first? Imagine that.

In other news, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Although, FoxNews and MSNBC will be sure to have two pundits on to discuss both sides of the sun rises in the east debate.
