A young Alabama woman’s fatal accident shined a spotlight on the dangers associated with low-paying jobs in America. The 20-year-old woman was struggling to earn enough money to pay for her upcoming wedding so she decided to take up a job working for the Ajin USA auto parts plant. Her tragic accident happened when a robot that the young woman was operating stopped working correctly. She attempted to fix the machine with three other coworkers and ended up stepping inside the robot’s cage. Unfortunately, the robot abruptly started working again and crushed the 20-year-old inside it. She died the following morning from the injuries she suffered.
