"maiming auto workers in Alabama"

Did I miss something? I know they're not union, but I havn't heard anything about safety mishaps

I didn't even look into it. It's just in the article somewhere. To even imply that manufacturing accidents are a severe problem right now that would in some way discredit this economy is silly. And that's for two reasons, first being that innovation has literally automated most people out of manufacturing jobs, and second being that work place accidents are way down in manufacturing in general in the US.
