business news in context, analysis with attitude

With brief, occasional, italicized and sometimes gratuitous commentary…

•  Lancaster Online reports that "Mars Wrigley is facing nearly $15,000 in fines after a federal investigation into how workers became trapped in a chocolate tank at the Elizabethtown facility last June.

"Those workers were not authorized to work in the tanks and were not trained on the proper safety procedures for the equipment, Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigators found."

When I first saw this story, I thought it was a joke, and actually was part of what I thought ultimately was a stupid debate about whether M&M's are woke or not, which was turned into a silly and generally much-ado-about-nothing ad campaign.
