Pfizer ordered to pay up over ‘AIDS-like’ virus infections

n what is being hailed as a major victory for workers in the biotech and nanotech fields, a former scientist with pharmaceutical firm Pfizer has been awarded $1.37 million for being fired after raising the alarm over researchers being infected with a genetically engineered "AIDS-like" virus.

Becky McClain, a molecular biologist from Deep River, Connecticut, filed a lawsuit against Pfizer in 2007, claiming she had been wrongly terminated for complaining about faulty safety equipment that allowed a "dangerous lentivirus" to infect her and some of her colleagues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable.

The corporation knew what they were dealing with, but cut safety for their workers to the bone, in an effort to pinch pennies.
