Wyoming should recognize Workers Memorial Day

Sunday April 28 is Workers Memorial Day, a day set aside each year to remember workers killed on the job, and the families they leave behind. It’s particularly important that Workers Memorial Day be recognized here in Wyoming where, until a couple of years ago, the state held the dubious distinction for having the worst, or second-worst, workplace fatality rate in the nation every year for a full decade.
