: Thousands of people died on the job in 2021. These were the deadliest industries.

More than 5,000 U.S. workers died on the job in 2021, according to new statistics released by the AFL-CIO, the country’s largest labor federation. And the number of fatalities among Black workers was at its highest point in nearly two decades.

In a statement Wednesday after the labor group released its annual “Death on the Job” report, AFL-CIO president Liz Shuler said that “every American should be alarmed and outraged by the tragic data unearthed in this report.”
