Wisconsin was one of the first states to initiate workers compensation, which became effective in 1911. That story is told on a video produced by students at Chester W. Nimitz High School in Houston TX. The project was done as an entry for National History Day and ended up as qualified for the national competition in Washington. The video tells the story of workers compensation in a compelling and interesting manner.
Teachers for the for the three 11th graders and a 9th grader were Barbi Petty and Linda Kleeman. You can view this video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcE6GJ05W0o.Unemployment Compensation History
