The construction industry continues to be a fertile field for the small entrepreneur, and an engine of upward mobility for immigrant and low-income populations. And, if OSHA (approaching its fiftieth anniversary) has not yet fully achieved Congress%u2019s stated purpose of providing every working man and woman with a safe workplace, we should take considerable satisfaction that the number of workers killed and seriously injured in workplace incidents has dropped sharply (as it has).

A corporate representative who participated in the fraudulent transfer may be held personally liable, regardless of whether the representative acted on behalf of the corporation in the course of his official duties.
