Texas Workers Much More Likely to Die on the Job than California Workers

via the Orange County Register:

“According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 3,849 workplace deaths in Texas from 2003 through 2010 – the years available in the online database. That was 10 percent higher than the 3,589 workers who died at work in California in the same period.

That’s not a negligible difference when you note that California – despite all its faults – has a far larger workforce than Texas.”
