    It’s a good Mission Statement, when will any Department actually act on their “Mission Statement”???

    “minimize the impact”???

    when you file a DBA claim, often at the request of your company to let them off the moral hook so to speak, its because they really want nothing to do with you any longer because of their “disposable” brand of business.
    they know when you are injured their DBA premimums go up, and nothing in their view should get in the way of the 500% raw profit they make on your labor alone – yes, if you thought your 150,000 dollar salary was good know that your company makes a 300% to 600% straight additional profit off your back, and this was the case from the start of the wars.
    Many of us did not know this back then. Our friends and family never mind us were subjected to a veritable witch hunt by the department of labor under the guise of persuing their DBA claims.
    Glad David got his email at last, if only to see for himself how bad he was screwed by the system, and how corrupt “judge” Kennington, Griffith et al really are.
    To tell a man and the court he is “malingering” when you deliberately revised his test score which clearly showed that he is indeed suffering from a potential fatal disorder is no different from killing him yourself in my book.

    I really am floundering in that I sure got a run around concerning my particpation in the 1962 nuclear tests at Johnston
    Island and my radiation exposure. DOL EEOICPA denied any assist
    as I did not work for DOE, RECA compensates at less than half
    and don’t provide medical assistance. My contractor no longer
    exists and has been merged with another organization. They have
    no knowledge of my employment although I worked for them 6 years.
    Now my senatoral rep says go to DLHWC. Other reps claim to have
    issued amendments but they all die in committee, alas, red tape.
