A Day's Work: The life and death of temporary workers

2 Comment(s) | Posted | by Ian Pajer-Rogers |

On a given day in the United States, three million temporary workers are on the job, working to put food on the table and keep the lights on. But as the number of temp workers increases, so do occupational hazards.

On his first day of work at his first job, temp worker Day Davis snapped a selfie and texted it to his girlfriend, excited about the future they would build together. 90 minutes later, Day Davis was dead.
