When Jobs Become Fatal

There’s a gender factor in occupational hazards: I found it curious that Joe Eskenazi’s article ["The Dead Pool," Sucka Free City, 6/22] saw fit to omit the most salient, indeed, shocking statistic from his source document [U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, 2011], namely that a whopping 4,216 men died in the workplace in 2009 compared to only 335 women. If 93 percent (or even 60 percent) of workplace deaths that occurred were women, I suspect Eskenazi would have told readers about it.

At the National Coalition for Men, we feel that the hugely disparate impact on men of workplace fatalities should be better publicized. Government resources should be devoted to saving working men’s lives, as they are already (properly) being spent in numerous areas to promote women’s health. Men often feel that to prove their value and to be loved, they must take on the riskiest work. All too often, they die as a result, and the effects ripple throughout society of losing our husbands, brothers, fathers, grandfathers, sons, friends, and co-workers.

    I just noticed Will's question about why NCFM Television Network has not been on the air. Here's the answer: We are working on cataloging hundreds if not thousands of audio and video segments from the men' s movement. Some are so old they have to be converted from Betamax to digital. We bought the necessary equipment and the project is being led by volunteers in San Francisco. The majority of the project will be completed early next year. Once we've achieved that milestone the NCFM Television Network will be revamped, improved, and expanded to include the historical audio and visual materials just mentioned.

    Because they spent 20 years studiously avoiding mass media. "Leaders" preferred to be small frogs in a microscopic pond.

      Auntie, what do you know about what we have done? NCFM has been in the L.A. Times, NY Times, CNN, Tom Leykis, John and Ken, Phil Donahue, Dr. Phil, Washington Times, and in lots of other major media. Please know what you're talking about before criticizing.

waybackmachineOver the years millions of people worldwide have visited a National Coalition For Men website. Also over the years the site has changed dramatically, been taken down, moved, and otherwise uprooted. In those processes much information was lost, not recovered, and does not appear on this site. However you can see earlier versions and many of the extraordinary accomplishments of NCFM back to 1996 by using the WayBackMachine. In the search box type www.ncfm.org
