Your Vote Matters! It Really Does!

Posted on by

PLEASE VOTE AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO VOTE. We realize people are getting tired of all the commercials, e-mails, TV chatter, etc. However, voting is important, particularly to working people concerned about how the legal system treats injured and abused workers. We think working people should be concerned about these rights!

Each vote really counts in state and local elections. Most laws that impact injured people come from the state. State legislators write the laws for most workers’ compensation, personal injury, and employment abuse. The following list gives you a way to judge if the candidates are likely to support working people or favor business and insurance.

1. Endorsements from Chamber of Commerce or other business groups are generally a negative for working people.
2. Financial support from Chamber of Commerce, insurance, big employers, etc. is generally a negative for workers.
3. Advertisements supporting a candidate calling for reducing workers’ compensation costs for business or reducing lawsuit costs for business are generally a negative for workers and their families.

So please vote because your vote really does matter.
