Please listen to the interview below with Steve Zeltzer.The issue of worker safety affects all of us...especially when it is concerned with the biotech industry. Contaminated workers can pass along genetically engineered microbes to the general population. Because of pharmaceutical patents, workers and the public may never have access to what is infecting them and therefore will not have the information to know how to treat the disease they are afflicted with.People in this situation are often diagnosed with vague conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome , Fibromyalgia..etc. The genetic makeup of these engineered substances are trade secrets and do not have to be revealed. Whose best interests are being protected here? Zeltzer does an excellent job... in the interview below... explaining the connections between government and corporations and how our presidents are merely hired corporateers and pass laws which benefit the corporations and not the people. Presidents may promise to control and restrict the actions of corporations but do they really? A president's actions and the results of his actions must be carefully analyzed
"Bio-tech workers - from scientists to lab techs - are being contaminated by patented genetically engineered products and no-one is looking after their health interests.
"There is a systemic corruption in this industry that controls our government," says Steve Zeltzer, chairman of California Coalition for Workers Memorial Day.
What role, if any, do unions play in the bio-tech and high-tech industries today?" LISTEN HERE
