Injuries caused by nail guns

Many Minnesota employees are required to use heavy machinery or tools while on the job. While many of these tools appear to be relatively easy to use, they can cause serious, potentially permanent injuries if they are used incorrectly or they malfunction. For example, nail guns are notorious for causing injuries, with at least two out of five apprentice carpenters suffering nail gun injuries at least once during their four years of training.

McDonald's workers file complaints of unsafe working conditions

Minnesota residents may be aware that the labor practices of many fast food corporations have been under fire recently. The Service Employees International Union has been campaigning for workers' base pay to be increased to $15 per hour, and restaurant operators have also been accused of not doing enough to ensure that their employees have a safe working environment. The matter took another turn recently when 28 complaints were filed with OSHA against McDonald's locations in 19 cities over a two-week period.
