Description

Over a hundred workers at the TRW brake plant have suffered from lung ailments because of the airborne metalworking fluid. The employees will become ill and be out of work for nearly five years later because of the toxic fluids. Warnings to the TRW were disregarded as the state inspectors reported the levels of metalworking fluid in the air exceeded safe levels.
