Recently, the world stood still as 33 minors were feared trapped in their underground grave, thousands of feet below the surface when a Chilean mine collapsed preventing their ability to reach the surface. While it took what many might have considered an eternity before all 33 were discovered alive, it was the extraordinary commitment of Chile’s president, Sebastian Pinera, a young billionaire who may be most responsible for the successful rescue of all 33 minors. While, this undertaking, with its extraordinary costs and risks could have been a political nightmare for president Pinera, his steady leadership and resolve has shown the world that miracles can and still do occur.
And while this is not quite the time to focus on who is to be blamed, for this now avoided catastrophe, we all need to admire and give thanks to the commitment that Chile and its administration has poured into this effort. To say that no expense or effort was spared in this endeavor is truly an understatement. Not only did the effort enlist miners, engineers, and the like to bore through the ground all the way to the trapped miners, but the effort enlisted experts from the United States of America’s NASA Space Program, many physicians, hematologists, biologists, psychologists, and even physical trainers as well as publicists to assist the miners weeks before the planned rescue on how to deal with the journalist and press coverage from around the world.
At some point, the larger message of how we protect the laborers of our world who give their lives to provide us with out basic necessities, such as these miners, must be addressed. For even here in Florida, our Florida legislature seems to be much more committed to the welfare of our corporate citizens, over the welfare of our laborers who suffer injury and face a failed worker’s compensation system here at home.
