In national news:

Details have emerged about a new documentary focusing on the workers’ comp system and set to be released May 4th. The film by Julia Davis and produced by Fleur De Lis Studios takes special aim at workplace injuries in the entertainment industry, but is highly critical of the system generally. The IMDB.com synopsis reads in part: “Workers Con shows how this system was created by elected officials along with lobbyists. It was designed to shield corporations from accountability to injured workers, while enriching doctors, insurance guarantors like the infamous AIG rescued by the federal government, a variety of attorneys from all levels, state agencies complicit with the employers and their payroll companies, set in place as straw-men, under the guise of compensation and medical care.”
