Letter to the editor: After Baertonâ€™s factory closed, there was a sharp increase in the number of claims filed for job-related injury compensation by the factoryâ€™s former employees, Hence there is reason to believe that most of those who filed for compensation after the factory closed were just out to gain benefits they did not deserve, and filed only to help them weather their job loss.
Each of the following, if true, weakens the argument above EXCEPT:
(A) Workers cannot file for compensation for many job-related injuries, such as hearings loss from factory noise, until they have left the job.
(B) In the years before the factory closed, the factoryâ€™s managers dismissed several employees who had filed injury claims.
(C) Most workers who receive an injury on the job file for compensation on the day they suffer the injury.
(D) Workers who incur partial disabilities due to injuries on the job often do not file for compensation because they would have to stop working to receive compensation but cannot afford to live on that compensation alone.
(E) Workers who are aware that they will soon be laid off from a job often become depressed, making them more prone to job-related injuries.
The author argues that the increasing number of suits for work related injuries after the factory closed is because the people are looking for a way to earn a fast buck.
We have to find a way to strengthen the argument.(Each of the following, if true, weakens the argument above EXCEPT)
C states that workers file for work related injuries the day they are injured hence the workers filling after the factory closed must be doing for some other purpose namely financial gain.
