What an outrage.

THE $1.8 billion fund set up by James Hardie to pay for thousands of asbestos victims is about to run out of money, allowing the corporate giant to delay payments to the dying.

The dire situation has prompted calls to the Federal Government to inject an emergency payment of more than $150 million into the fund so victims can be fully compensated.

It comes as a dying mother of four – aged just 39 – delivered a simple message to the company: “Just do the right thing.”

Yeah? And what about doing the right thing by their shareholders, love?

I guess they didn’t factor into your greedy-little guilt trip, did they?
