DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Two workers at a national research center say they were threatened with their jobs after questioning how the facility handled the waste of animals used in mad cow disease research.

Richard Auwerda and Timothy Gogerty alerted their bosses and Ames city officials in May that the National Animal Disease Center might be contaminating Ames' sewage plant with diseased tissue and fluids.

Afterward, the two animal caretakers received threats and sarcastic comments from their bosses who worried how the facility's research would be affected, said Michael Lewis, Auwerda's attorney.


That's just lovely, now, isn't it?

"Lab Workers Say Bosses Threatened Them"

Maybe lab workers should first start out in sales, that might help them get used to getting threatened.

In any civilized country around the world it is always the business owner who has final say, any business can fire any employee without stating the reason. Hence a business owner can fire you for any reason.

Threats come with any high-stress job.
