The tragic death of a US ground crew worker in Montgomery, Alabama highlights the dangerous and exploitative conditions faced by workers in the airline industry.
The worker who was “ingested into the engine” was employed by Piedmont Airlines, a subsidiary of the American Airlines Group, and died while on the job at an airport.
The NTSB said in a statement to Insider the accident occurred while an American Airlines Embraer 170 was parked at the gate with an engine on.
While the National Transportation Safety Board conducts an investigation into the incident, it is essential to recognize that this tragedy is not an isolated incident but rather a symptom of the capitalist system that prioritizes profit over the safety and well-being of its workers.
The airline industry, like so many others, relies on cheap labor and inadequate safety measures to boost profits, resulting in preventable deaths and injuries.
It is time for a shift towards a more humane and equitable economic system that values the lives and labor of all workers.
