First Aired: January 9, 2003

The New York Times won a Pulitzer Prize for articles written in conjunction with this 2003 workplace-safety report, which focuses on foundries operated by the McWane Corp. of Birmingham, Ala. "Many McWane workers say safety has been sacrificed to increased productivity," says narrator Will Lyman. The hour examines the operations in plants in Texas, Alabama, New York and New Jersey, and includes interviews with former employees, relatives of those who died on the job and OSHA officials.
