    When you make a rule that says all work injuries need to be reported, you get complaints of government overreach because sometimes of course the injury IS just treatable with a band-aid. But if you don't do that, companies will just exploit the loophole and treat everything with a band-aid to avoid reporting. Absolutely disgusting.
