On Monday, Workers’ Memorial Day, folks gathered to remember loved ones who lost their lives on the job throughout 2013.

The mother of Mark Ellsworth Junior was among the many who lost a loved one in a work place death last year.

While labor leaders say the number of deaths has dropped, they stress there is still work to do.

Workers’ Memorial Day recognizes the Occupational Safety and Health Act, passed in 1970.
