  • A lot of people never worked a job alongside people who got life altering injuries and were then intimidated and dominated by an employer colluding with the healthcare provider ... and it shows.

  • The people near the top of the hierarchy can sometimes be the most worthless and corrupt. The workers who actually do the work are treated inhumanely- just because they are deemed "replaceable" with other vulnerable people. F'*** this world.

  • Wow, talk about timely... I was just offered a job at a local chicken processing plant as an occupational nurse. I can understand the frustration of the employees thinking we really can't do anything to help them and they are correct. All we are legally allowed to do is basic first aid (bandaids and Tylenol) and refer them to the weekly on-site doctor for chronic conditions. Obviously if there is an urgent situation we are the first ones to respond and have to call 911. I would also be in charge of worker's comp claims, being told that I have to "weed out the fakers since no one really wants to do this job." Yeah, no shit. It's cold, wet, and they are constantly covered in chicken parts. Plus I got that casual racism vibe that's unfortunately very common down here in the deep South, as most of the workers are either minorities and ex-cons. Definitely a lot to consider before I accept the offer.

Now the hundred of thousands of workers may not like it, but on the other hand, there will be a save and human working enviroment.

  • So no more meat for the working class? That’s what you’re proposing. John... you lost me at 17 minute mark. The solutions you present are not practical. Social distancing for meet workers? C’mon man??? If you have been a white kid working at a fish processing plant in the summer making $15 to $20 an our, you know why these jobs exist and why people take them. It’s good money for a skill you can learn quickly an earn overtime easily. I expect my son to get a job when he is 14/15 but he won’t if the minimum wage is 15 bucks per hour.

With Covid I was forced to sign a piece of paper acknowledging that if at any point I felt unsafe because of the epidemic, I could not take advantage of unemployment. The US is trash. I know when you work in the media, it may be hard to see. But its not just meat plants..... its everywhere. We *DONT* matter to our employers and thanks to a specific fascist political party that recently attempted to take over the government... we don't matter to the government either. We have no rights, and we will absolutely never receive them. I keep saying, you can't both make life unbearable, and make suicide illegal. Pick one and only one.
