High Risk of Lung Disease for Union Carbide Corporation Workers Exposed to Asbestos on the Job
Originally producing and purchasing ethylene, Union Carbide Corporation came to know a substantial growth between 1920 and 1957, expanding their business to manufacture other chemicals as well, such as butadiene and styrene. However, the most dangerous product the company was manufacturing at the time was Calidria chrysotile asbestos, which Union Carbide Corporation would mine in close proximity to King City, California. Shamefully, company executives were knowledgeable with regard to the awful effects asbestos exposure could have on their employees, as one internal memo clearly states – “make hay while the sun shines” – yet they decided for continuing to use the mineral nevertheless. As a result, thousands of former employees are now struggling with harrowing diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis, asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.
Union Carbide Corporation does not have a trust fund set up for injured workers, as the company has afforded to pay out compensation to everyone so far and was therefore not forced to seek bankruptcy protection.
