I'm an athlete and a 25 yr vegan, it's easier now more than ever. if we turn to plant based and or vitro, jobs would be lost yes but much of the work force everywhere is on the brink of major job retraining anyway. All factories will all be completely robotic before you realize it. Thanks John!

Just another reason to go vegan!!! Every time we buy animal products from these disgusting companies we allow them to keep profiting off the needless massacre of animals and their inhumane treatment of their workers.

Fines for workers dying in a plant should be around the same as a EU GDPR fines: "$10 million, or 2% of the firm’s worldwide annual revenue from the preceding financial year, whichever amount is higher". That should incentives some people to take it seriously.

how can we continue feeding Americas but at the same time reform our meat packing practices? Remember people calling for a shutdown that there could be massive food shortages if we dont think this through and have a solid plan.

I am at 14:11 of this video this is not surprising we know corporations are evil especially usually always and most likely when the pale skins are in charge they make everything worse John Oliver said it himself how many people are behind the desk and how many people are cutting the chicken and having their hands crushed and being told to sign s*** with their teeth.

Being vegan or vegetarian is not the answer. Former underwriter for large scale food distributors and manufacturers here. (Means I had to learn every ugly detail to offer them legal protection.) Fruit and vegetable growers have it bad too. They use migrant workers under horrific conditions. They are forced to go to the bathroom in the fields. They go for long periods without breaks and have poor living conditions. Children are still there too. When it gets processed, the workers are treated similarly to that of this meat packing olant. This means contamination and slave like conditions for all the food you are getting. Organic used to equal small farm. No more. Have you noticed a trend of all your fresh produce coming from Mexico? Yeah, we made a trade deal to take all of their produce and give them are over processed foods. Same conditions. Same issues. We now just made it Mexico's problem too. Big corp has taken over government. We need to remove seed patents, and have government sponsor seed development, classify junk food for what it is & raise food budgets to help schools, and support other farmers beside corn and dairy producers. Why can't we help the broccoli industry? Corp greed has taken the helm of our most basic need, food. Our power as a nation comes from an abundance of cheap food. Don't stop that. Just change it to healthy food. As it stands one virus/fungal outbreak could collapse our whole food infrastructure . If we don't do something soon we are headed towards a famine of global proportion. Thanks for reading. I'll insert a happy face for YouTube algorithms now. 😁

As a truck driver picking up from these places and the egg farm are the worst experiences to have. First there’s the stink that’s so strong you can smell it miles away. If that’s not bad enough there’s so many flies that if you crack your window for a second swarms fly inside.The craziest thing is seeing the shift change it’s like watching a concert let out as huge droves of people scramble to their cars.

Categorizing LWT episodes by their Magnus Archives fear: This one is pretty obviously the Flesh. In addition to the very on point 'meat packing' theme, the main issue is that people are only valued for their physical bodies and treated as disposable if those bodies cannot work well enough. The owl adds a little hint of the Eye, which is as it should be.

Like many family secrets, they get swept under the rug to keep the family intact. Also a good read for the effects of Slaughterhouse work on employees. Slaughterhouse: The Shocking story of Greed by Gail Eisnitz. Many immigrants do these jobs, and it affects their psyches in horrible ways, the ones that work in the plants and/ or on the kill floors.

When I used to work at FedEx as a package handler, the items would come down the line so fast that it was extremely hard to be able to take a restroom break because of the way our work space was organized. If you're the first in your line grabbing items for the first three trucks, all your items would fall into the hands of the next 6 trucks/the other 2 package handlers in your line. The turnover rate was very high which meant we were often understaffed and sometimes had two handlers split 9 trucks. Sure you could ask your manager if they could cover for you, but not only do they have other things to do but you can't ask every time you need to take a quick wiz. I always went to the restroom before going to work and would only take breaks if I really had to go and I'm happy to say I never wore a diaper. So glad I only worked there for a little bit over a year.

You call your employees your family so that they feel responsible to their job beyond the paycheck that they receive, in addition to the undervaluing that John mentioned. Same reason why we call people "heroes". Businesses love heroes, because they aren't paid for the services they provide to the community.

Make sure you wash your chickens and cook them thoroughly--chicken processed by sick workers, injured bleeding workers, workers loosing body parts???, workers urinating on themselves, with no time to think or go to the bathroom, no leverage to call in sick or receive decent medical coverage, or workers with Bengay rubbed all over them? --or better yet one more good reason, just don't eat meat.

OSHA has put me into very dangerous situations because nobody that works for me has a license to operate a new model of towmotor. We all know how to operate a tow motor but apparently this new one needs a different license(pay money for the new thing). Many times I have had to carry 200 plus pound things up many flights of stairs because it is safer than using a tow motor. Thanks OSHA for getting my back, I mean wrecking my back!

The thing is this is nothing new. I know that I'm not telling you anything mind blowing, but this has been going on forever. I raised two kids without meat. It's not hard if you live in a decent sized city, and you learn how to cook a tiny bit. Most people I know would never have any idea that I don't eat meat. It's just something we do. We taught our kids to not judge anyone else. It's just a normal part of our life that we don't put on anyone else. I'm not judging you or telling you what to do. I'm just saying it's not that hard if it's something you want to do.

that's why it needs both systems to keeo each other in check - not everything about capitalism is bad and not every attempt of creating a society only based and socialism is really that good - do you need capital to build a society, yes but you also need a society which sees itself as a solidarity community to keep everything on a humantitarian level and that is also the reason why tax evasion should be punished harder + the money should not only be paid, but with interest - every tax evasion, especially the big ones, is a crime against society, because that is the money the system is lacking - hospitals, schools, prisons etc. - that is the reason why everything gets privatized and why the prices (& taxes) are rising
