Posted October 10, 2018 05:53:22A motorcyclists death on the jobs is no longer a local problem.
But the motorcycling industry is not immune from the impact of automation.
The death of a motorcycler at a construction site in a city that had been a major employment center for the industry was an event that prompted many local officials to seek ways to help the industry grow.
For more than 20 years, the state of California has had a program that offers jobs to motorcyclers.
In 2014, the program was expanded to include more than 70 percent of the population.
Now, the California Motorcycle Association is asking for more federal help to help make the industry more competitive.
The association has received a request from the U.S. Department of Labor, asking it to consider increasing the number of workers on the state’s construction sites.
The motorcycles death was the fourth motorcyclie death in California since 2020, and the fourth fatal accident in the industry.
A motorcycle crash killed a construction worker in Santa Cruz in March.
In the fall, two construction workers were killed and at least five others were injured in another construction accident in Sacramento.
The association says the state has an unfair labor practice in which contractors can fire workers for union organizing activities.
Motorcyclists are also considered employees, and their job security depends on their ability to ride on the same roads and pay the same taxes.
The Associated Press has compiled this report.
