Of course. Another official to take a job at insurance company. No wonder how her activities were manipulated.

Christine Baker started as an insurance employee before being employed by the state workers compensation department. After attending many hearings within the CCHWC & DIR, for many years where Ms. Baker was a major player's that she was a part of, and going up the state agency ranks AND NOT once, did she ever want to become concerned with what is happening to injured workers and that was proven even more so when she attended a workers compensation conference in WA.D.C.. in 2010.She would not even ride on the same elevator with injured workers and their advocates. She disregarded California's injured workers. Through out the decades of working as a civil servant, just how much of the insurance industry's instructions did Christine Baker infuse in the state of CA.laws to deny totally injured workers medical care disability wages? It is heir apparent by her going to work for an insurance company like so many top state civil servants that end up working for the insurance industry , that like Christine, did their best to deny rightful benefit to CA., injured workers. Millions of them!
