I thought there were already government studies on occupational illness and injury.

There have been studies in the past concerning which races are more susceptible to what diseases.

From what I have seen from working with Mexicans straight from Mexico is that they tend to be oblivious to hazard. They tend to stand in a location of imminent hazard telling each other funny stories, or attempt work for which the are inexperienced concerned the job performed and are ignorant of safe work procedures.

There is about the same percentage of stupid people as you find everywhere else, but cultural norms and a reluctance to admit one is inexperienced contribute to a high rate of industrial injuries for Mexican nationals working in America.

To paraphrase Gustavo Arellano:

"You don't need a study, ASK AN AMERICAN!"
