"Chicago's temporary staffing industry is at the epicenter of a national crisis of worker deaths, wounds, and exposure to toxic substances," said Leone José Bicchieri, Executive Director of the Chicago Workers' Collaborative.
"National experts on occupational health and safety are calling on the temp industry here in Illinois to take specific actions to enhance worker safety." "Temp workers are human beings, not disposable cups to be thrown into hazardous workplaces without any training or protections," said Bicchieri.

"Their view was those 10 Latinos ... getting in that van are the reason I'm not going to work," said Leone Bicchieri, the group's executive director. "As opposed to, it's the dispatcher following orders from someone higher up." Black workers, he said, are more likely to complain about wage theft or workplace injuries than Latino workers, who might be worried about their immigration status or unsure of other options. Bicchieri's wife emigrated from Mexico and worked for years as a temp. He's trying to convince Latino workers it's in their long-term interests to fight job discrimination that actually favors them.
