I just finished reading A Livelihood in Nuclear Waste, Under Threat. This is the most socially irresponsible article having to do with nuclear waste that I have ever read!
First, it is written in the style of novel and not a news article and second........
“People keep asking, ‘When do you think they’ll let us be back at work?’ ” Rick Fuentes was quoted as saying.The WIPP plant was closed because it was a health risk to the workers and the people living in the area. Do we really care more about our work then we care about ourselves?
I don't know if Mr. Fuentes was speaking for himself or for the United Steelworkers union where he serves as a chapter president. But if that is the United Steelworkers stance I would suggest they really look out more for their employees and work to clean up this nuclear waste mess.
The questions should not be "Will I have a job?" - rather "Will I have a life?"
