On Workers Memorial Day, Think About the Kids

Hunter Stern

Serious work-related accidents can have a devastating impact on families, especially children. The financial impact can be life shattering.  The future can look frightening to someone whose parent or spouse has been seriously or fatally injured at work.  Already confronting difficult emotions, they often must confront the hurdle of funding their education—the key to their future and ours.

Each year, hundreds of kids face this challenge. This year, as we commemorate Workers Memorial Day on April 28th, we can make a difference for the children of California workers who have been fatally or seriously injured on the job.
