NL Injured Workers Association weighs in on the Workers' Comp Debate

Workers compensation was one of our topics on the Morning Show last week. Richard Alexander of the province's Employers' Council was our guest. He was speaking about how the workers compensation program is hurting businesses' ability to compete and, in turn, hurting the economy. We also spoke to Leslie Galway, the head of the Workplace Health and Compensation Commission. Today, we'll hear what users of the system have to say about it. Patricia Dodd is the president of the Newfoundland and Labrador Injured Workers Association.
