"What happens is the companies do not want to lose time. I cut my thumb while I was planting trees. I wrapped it up and worked two more days until I couldn't work anymore because of the pain.

I was in the hospital for fourteen days and they told me they wanted to cut off my thumb because the infection was so bad." Enrique Napoleon Hernandez-Lopez, H-2B forestry worker
