A Dangerous Business

Logo for A Dangerous Business
This is the website for a Frontlne program that was a joint investigation by Frontline, The New York Times and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The 54 minute program is in six sections and concerns the McWane corporation's aggressive management style that helped the company to achieve tremendous profits through increasing worker productivity, although at a high cost to workers' safety. One can watch the entire program, but there are also links to related articles.
