Investopedia reports:

A week after United Continental Holdings Inc. (UAL) settled a lawsuit over baggage handler workplace injuries, a United worker was locked in an airplane's cargo hold.

The Washington Post reports that the worker spent over an hour locked in an airplane traveling from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Washington, D.C., on the afternoon of Jan. 1. The flight was operated by Mesa Airlines, an airline operating regional feeder flights for United and American Airlines Group Inc.

[...] The worker was unharmed in the incident and told The Washington Post that he was advised by his lawyer not to discuss the incident.

Less than a week earlier, on Dec. 27, United Airlines announced it settled a lawsuit brought by its baggage handlers. The workers alleged more than 600 musculoskeletal workplace injuries between 2011 and 2015.

    Musculoskeletal injuries. It just means that after a hard day's work, they have to go home and rub some Ben Gay on tired, sore muscles. Err - wait - can we say that anymore? Is Ben Gay politically correct? Maybe it's Benji Queer now? Fek, I can't keep up with the changing times.

    There is a supply side shortage of pronouns. You will take whatever you are offered.
