Neglected Safety Violations Equate to $283,000 Fine

Exel, a packer for the Hershey’s Company, is facing a $283,000 fine for unreported injuries that have taken place over the past year. According to Julia Preston’s article Hershey's Packer is Fined Over Its Safety Violations, published by the New York Times, the investigation that ensued was directly linked to protests held by students who opposed the packing company's business strategy of hiring foreign students for work. After 43% of all injuries went unreported, OSHA decided to step in and take action against this multi-billion dollar conglomerate.
