We in the U.S. are celebrating the 80th birthday of the social safety net program in the U.S. called Social Security. Due to purchase of our judicial and political branches of government by corporate interests many disabled victims of truck crashes in the U.S. have only this very meager stipend to survive on. Their families can be driven to bankruptcy for generations. Industry provides no charity for victims of their lax safety efforts including even for orphaned children. The U.S. government provides no advocacy for trucking victims or their surviving families.
