La Opinion, Posted: Jun 09, 2008

LOS ANGELES The number of Latino immigrants killed by work accidents has increased by 350 percent, between 1992 and 2006, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The rise hits Latino immigrants working in construction, industry and agriculture. According to the CDC report, most deaths occur from falls or being hit by heavy materials. La Opinion writes that workers dont report their injuries and take more risks than others because they fear losing the job.
