Companies Without Telephone Numbers?

Alexander Bell's First Telephone
Injured workers and their representatives are now being confronted with a new phenomenon of the technological age, companies without telephone numbers. Companies are becoming less accessible to personal conversation by removing their telephone numbers from contact information entirely. 

The elimination of telephonic communications makes it more difficult for injured workers to report injuries and illnesses, and receive assistance through human contact. Many companies employ "blocked" numbers that essential make telephonic communications a one-way street leaving the injured working hanging on the line when cut off. 

One can only reason that the failure of companies to supply telephone numbers is either a cost saving item, or that companies are just too important to speak with individuals any longer.
