NBC News Today reports on IBM workers' lawsuits against the company. Almost 200 former and current employes at the East Fishkill IBM plant have accused the computer giant of an unsafe workplace. The story reveals that the company did nothing to protect the employes from breathing and handling chemicals that were known to be dangerous since the mid-80s. IBM did heed the government warnings about the chemicals 10 years later. Meanwhile, many IBM employees became sick and died of various cancers, or had children with severe birth defects, the NBC reports.
