Just had a fight with some asshole conservative who says people should find employment elsewhere if they don't like how their employer treats them. This clip couldn't be more relevant to why human rights are essential to the labor force.

No body care for those workers and that will not change and no matter how much noise there is no body cares. I worked in the UK for a stock take company on a so called "0 hours" contract and sometimes I was working for more then 30 consecutive days without a day off, many times my shifts were longer then 16 hours without been paid extra time and with a total disregard to health and safety.

Many meat packing workers are also not actually paid anything because they are in a work-rehab program and the drug rehabilitation program gets the money that would be paid to the workers.

My favorite Dr. Seuss book was (The Cat's Quizzer) "Are you Smarter than the Cat in the Hat?" I know now, thanks to Joe Biden, poor kids are just as smart as the cat in the hat. Another favorite of mine was... If I Ran The Zoo. That is the book Joe Biden is currently reading, in order to run the Democratic Party, and Government.

That Purdue Farms commercial had me rolling! Bloody memorable, too. Honestly, I'd call that a good ad. It got the viewer's attention, held it, and slapped them with the product so hard it was headspinning! Not to mention, it left me wanting more... Like, I need to know what happened. Is the dog gonna be okay?

I mean To Think about it meat should be taken care more than other food 'cause virus came from it, I agree with some religions about eating not meat like Jewish religion they believe meat is a sin and there are people who eat only vegetables and it's a good one to care yourself think about make good decisions, stay safe stay fit stay thin a country who's calling advanced should promote healthy food for people U.S. seems to need step forward like a previous comment, do not keep eating meat and fast food it comes back life worse it's a healthy advice if ye want to live better without any health issues ask for this with a Doctor and Do not drink soda and you'll know.

People can be horrified all they want, this isn't going to really END until Americans stop feeling like we need cheap meat fourteen meals a week. Regulation might tinker and improve things a little, but the whole system is driven by our collective appetite for cheap meat. It is possible to find meat that was pastured on small independent farms and processed at small local meat locker facilities. But guess what? It's more expensive. So including meatless meals in our diets is also part of the solution. If you're interested in switching to non-factory meat, the Eat Wild website has info on farmers. Farmers markets are another good way to make connections.

How can it be a $10,000 dollar check and blank at the same time? Blank Check means the amount has not been filled in FFS. Not that they didn't fill the account information. Boldly handed the check because it's the way business in government has always been done in this corrupt system. Pikachu face doesn't convince me.

A lot of this is misinformation. when the illegals were rounded up at the meatpacking places the citizens filled their place. . And, machinery can do this work now, less need for humans, The harvesters of the fields could be repaced with machinery but Congress would not approve subsidizing the industry if machinery is used. It's the politicians that need to be pressured to changing our method of harvesting. In my early life I was on the assembly line doing 'piece work' I think I have more insight than a guy running his mouth
