    To the left is Potranco Road, that's oh.. about 2 miles from my place. I remember that day cause there were a LOT of sirens, now I know why. My condolences to the poor girls family.

    SAN ANTONIO — A 19-year-old woman was killed Monday when a foreman crushed her with a backhoe bucket while she worked at a construction site in the far West Side.Bexar County deputies responded to an injured person call around 10:30 a.m. In the 13700 block of Potranco Road. When they arrived at the construction site, they discovered Destiny Rodriguez had been crushed to death.

    Sgt. Roger Pedraza of the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said Rodriguez was inside a dig site and the operator of the backhoe, later identified as a foreman at the site, didn't see her and dropped the bucket on top of her.

    Horrible. This is the kind of thing that should NEVER EVER happen. And yet it does.

    .....The victim’s sister said Rodriguez was also injured only last week when the same foreman allegedly hit her leg with a backhoe. An employee at the construction site said the foreman is “always careless.”......

    These people have no right to complain, if they don't want to die, they should find another job.

    Its texas, they have a right to work, not a right to safety.

    It's not evil, it's not cruel. It's TRUTH.

    You are hired to help provide said company with a service, your skills which helps said company, realize profits. Those profits are not for you, they are for those whom have a vested interest in the company, the investors.

    Because let's face reality kids, companies don't get started on charity. Someone, or a group of people come up with an idea, called a business plan. They use this to attract investors who believe that plan will lead to profit. So they invest THEIR money for gain.

    As the company grows, and is successful, more investors are drawn in. And thus more people are hired, like you. When there is an economic down turn, or the company runs into hard times through various factors from mis management to just bad luck... the people that placed their money into the company, the investors, get worried.

    What the management get's faced with is often the choice between firing/laying off XX% of the company to increase profitability or having investors pull out, which could cause a run on the company and have it go out of business.

    So You, the Worker, are an EXPENDABLE ASSET.

    That's not evil, it's not "acidic". It's reality.
    Suddenly expendable assets are human and have families?

    Troll much ?

    Well digging around it seems the guy running the site, the foreman was not a good person. And this poor 19 year old paid the price. Life sometimes is cruelly unfair.

    I was the Safety PO for the OA Division and liaison for the Ops Dept on the Inchon, first time I heard that was from the Chief in charge of the Safety Dept. "I don't want to have to write up any new regulations, understood?"
