Republican Legislators continue attack on Iowa workers – this time on injured workers.

Press Conferences will be held, Tuesday, February 28, in several Iowa Cities to discuss the proposed worker’s compensation bill and share information on HSB 169 and ways that we see how it may affect working families.

work injury formThis bill has been proposed in a House subcommittee, (HSB 169), and it attacks working families by cutting benefits to Iowans injured on the job.

Public sector Iowans were attacked by the gutting of collective bargaining, and this puts further strain and stress on working families here in Iowa.

“This is a concerted assault on the most vulnerable in Iowa” said Jay Smith, Lawyer for Smith & McElwain Law Office.
