Jesse Ceniceros is President of Voters Injured at Work.

Success For Whom?

By Jesse Ceniceros

Last week VotersInjuredatWork.org, (VIAW), a non-profit political organization of injured workers and their families marked Workers’ Memorial Day by releasing its analysis of six years of experience under Governor Schwarzenegger’s SB 899, saying the law “has failed Californians injured on the job.”

Gov. Schwarzenegger has called his workers’ compensation law a great “success.” We ask, “Success for whom?” SB 899 has been extremely profitable for insurance companies, but a colossal failure for those of us injured on the job.
