"THAT WOULD BE GREAT, WOULDN'T IT? I MEAN, CALL THEM ON THE PHONE AND LET 'EM HAVE IT RIGHT IN THE KISSER. GIVE 'EM EVERY SWEAR WORD YOU KNOW, AND EVEN SOME YOU DON'T. UNFORTUNATELY, THAT'S NOT HOW CIVILIZED PEOPLE BEHAVE--AND IT WON'T MOVE THEM TO ACT ON YOUR BEHALF IN THE LEAST.
SO INSTEAD, WE'LL WRITE OUT A PETITION. WE'LL TELL THEM EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED, WHAT HURTS, WHY THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE, AND WHAT BENEFITS YOU'RE ENTITLED TO UNDER THE LAW. WE'LL NOT ONLY SEND IT TO THEM, BUT TO THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR AS WELL. IN TURN, THE DEPARTMENT WILL SEND IT TO THE OFFICE OF ADMINISTRATIVE HEARINGS WHERE A JUDGE WILL GET INVOLVED IN YOUR CASE -- THAT WILL GET THEIR ATTENTION!"

"WILL MY EMPLOYER GET MAD AT ME FOR DOING THIS, MR. WOLF?"
"NO. THEY KNOW THAT EMPLOYEES GET HURT AT WORK; IT'S PART OF DOING BUSINESS. BUT IF THEY DO GET MAD AND TRY TO TAKE THINGS OUT ON YOU, THERE ARE LAWS PROHIBITING THEIR RETALIATION."
