The Uncompensated Worker: California Case Study

In the latest issue of our special report series titled, "The Uncompensated Worker," author Peter Rousmaniere takes a look at two injured workers, two different income levels and one big (bad) surprise for both! In many respects, Jose, an undocumented farmworker from Mexico, and Mike, a physical therapist at a mid-size home healthcare company, have little in common as part of California's vast labor force. But as this report on the state's wage replacement laws demonstrates, when it comes to take-home income after an injury, California workers end up feeling the squeeze.
