BILL MOYERS JOURNAL | Workplace Safety in America | Trailer | PBS

Duration: 00:34

Injury rates reported at America’s poultry plants have dropped dramatically in recent years, and so have workplace safety inspections. Are regulators rewarding companies for inaccurate reporting of injuries?

Bill Moyers Journal and Exposé: America’s Investigative Reports go inside America’s poultry industry, which employs almost a quarter million workers nationwide, to show the reality of working conditions and to investigate how official statistics showing a drop in workplace injuries may have been the result of deceptive reporting. Also on the program, Bill Moyers interviews Senator Barbara Boxer about global warming.
