    Unions would destroy this.
    There were several complaints against the foreman for safety violations and carelessness. Apparently, he severely bruised the woman's leg with a backhoe a week before he killed her.

    The foreman should be charged with negligent homicide.

    So, how do we know that this wasn't employee error?

    Before, or after the investigation?

    Looks like they have enough evidence to charge him with already.

    That doesn't mean it wasn't the girls fault. Workers get hurt everyday, through their own unsafe conduct. Past conduct is only relevent if he's found to be at fault.

    As a owner operator of heavy equipment for many years I can say stuff can go wrong very quickly. Accidents unfortunately do happen and the causes can be many. Anyone that has a opinion on this and has never sat on a hoe,dozer,excavator, skidsteer, dump truck etc etc etc, needs to shut your mouth as you are clueless about the hazards involved.
