Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Not exactly. Workers comp insurance is required so that if an employee is injured in the performance of their job duties there is insurance to insure compensation for the employee.McDonald's is required to pay out for workplace injuries
We shall see.and they will be forced by a court of law to do so.
And how would you exactly do this since it's a matter of corporate, not franchise policy, and what mechanism of the judiciary and statute would you rely on to levy this punishment? What legal recourse is there for "excessive greed?" What law did this franchise owner fail to follow?As a governing body I would severely fine the owner of the franchise for his excessive greed and failure to follow the law.
I thought you were a big "keep the government out of my life" kind of guy.He can allow workman's comp or he gets fined $250,000 for refusing to do so. Simply put -- he takes care of his employee or his business goes bye-bye.
The right thing to do, as I have said before, is for McDonald's to recognize this guy for the hero he is and hold some kind of fund raiser to help pay his bills. Maybe get franchise owners and their employees to kick in and corporate would match. It's an idea. But they aren't in the business of doing the right thing and I understand that. However it would be ridiculous for McDonald's to discard their policy in light of this incident. The exposure to future and past liability is too big.

Has anyone seen the video? I can see it's out there but I am having trouble actually viewing it.
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
