  • The meatpacking industry sounds horrible, but it's not just the meatpacking industry. It's corporate. I've had jobs where is we were busy there were no breaks. I got written up for going to the bathroom twice, while customers were waiting. I've seen people get fired because they got an injury. But I'm pretty sure the meatpackers have it worse since they are being taken advantage of if they are immigrants. But anyone that's ever worked a line knows you can't leave to piss, so it really is not surprising to me that people would were diapers, no joke, I've thought about it. People are being treated like machines in every low-level corporate job and people are treated as disposable, especially in rural places where work is hard to find.

  • I've read about a foot down the list of comments; so far, no mention of meatless Mondays. We live in Pottersville (It's a Wonderful Life) and a grubby bunch of "garlic eaters" the lot of us. Capitalists depend on a docile, easily-duped populace devoid of any capacity or desire to act rationally. George Bush the afterthought confirmed this serf-building sentiment in his first State of the Union address: "Get down to Disney World in Florida," he said. "Take your families and enjoy life, the way we want it to be enjoyed." Notice he specifically doesn't say the way YOU want it to be enjoyed, which reasonably might be expected to be with a lot less meat.

  • It sounds like slave labor. What is needed perhaps is a revision to the Emancipation Proclamation and Append Amendments to it that state things like 1) minimum wage PLUS danger money to at least $20 per hour; 2) Workplace safety standards and breaks consistent with a civilized industrial country like the U.S.; and 3) To get rid of shambolic contractual sign-offs that essentially destroy your health, block your legal rights to compensation and even death benefits; and essentially create a violently hostile dangerous workplace environment.

Its like all the laws changed to make work conditions decent back in the 1930s never happened.

  • I used to work at a Cargill meat packing plant, one of the Union line workers asked his supervisor for a bathroom break five times over the course of an hour the supervisor yelled and screamed and wouldn't allow him to take a bathroom break. The union rep for that worker came over and also yelled and screamed at the worker to get back to work. The worker was an older man in his 60s or 70s...he tried to hold it but eventually peed his pants. More yelling and screaming at him by the union rep and the supervisor. it was one of the worst human rights violations I've ever seen at that Cargill plant. I will never work for them again.

  • It is really disappointing that just from the beginning of the video you said that the conditions that animals face inside this facilities are terrible, but that they are already "talked enough"... Well no, I couldn't find any single video where you talk about them and how animals are not products to be sold, so let's begin there. I totally understand that workers conditions are so bad as well, but at least this people have a voice to speak up and to act on it. Animals only have their lives and humans still take it away from them. So unfair and so sad that you John Oliver won't dig in this topic because this show is probably supported by sponsors or because your comfort zone and resistance to change won't let you do the changes that are needed for the world to improve in so many aspects, but you probably already know, I wouldn't believe that someone as smart and well prepared like you didn't know about it.

  • So Mr. Oliver if I were a millionaire I would not mind paying $8 a pound for chicken. The person who complains without proposing a solution is just bitching. Please offer a solution instead of complaining. Let's do a thought experiment. Let's say there are 10 workers per line, basically 5 per side of the production line. Because of social distancing there are only two workers per line instead. Is the price of chicken going to go down, remain the same, or go up. Of course the price will increase due to the reduced amount of chickens being produced for consumption. Let's also include the maintenance workers who are present every day and night working who also have to socially distance while working together. Sounds like a contradiction? It is. John wants to complain about the working conditions for people and yet does nothing...... besides complain for a profit. 📈
