Please John do another segment on Mexico, our current government is a comedic gold mine, from the way they’re handling the pandemic to their infrastructure “projects” to raffling the presidential airplane to supporting a RAPIST as a candidate for governor I really wish I was making this stuff up

One of my friends works in one of these places, and I worry about him every day. I feel like this video was just barely scratching how bad it is in there. My friend made a comment about counting his days once, and I can't forget it.

This is pretty much true of most production work: I started a factory job last Fall and didn't last 2 weeks. I shat myself because there was no one to substitute for me. We were taking staggered breaks to catch up on backlog and working through "normal" break-time. I've gotta go, I look out and there are no blue-shirts, nobody; they're all on break. When I would get home, I'd open the car door and move to try & get out... body don't work. And instead, I'd just flop back in the seat and sleep in the car. About a week and a half in, I can't take this anymore. I'm letting the team down, I can't keep up, I'm getting buried.

Don’t eat meat. If you do, don’t eat much, and buy it from a small, reputable farm. Or, better yet, hunt it yourself.

I literally stoped buying all Tyson products after the betting pool hit the news. No, firing them doesn't fix anything, how do you hire that many psychopaths in the first place. At the very least, it was already acceptable behavior in your corporate culture. I generally avoid Texas made products as the only reason companies move there is because the state doesn't enforce employee rights. Be wary of any company relocating there, they're avoiding standards along with taxes.

Corporate fines should always be assayed as a percentage of total company revenue. The minimum fine for a non-accidental violation of a law or rule should be 1% and the maximum should be 100%. Certain types of violation should come with a mandatory minimum level of fine. For example if they cause a fatality through a previously known but not fixed safety hazard they should have to pay 10% of revenue or a hundred thousand dollars, whichever is greater. If they expose a bunch of employees to known chemical hazards without informing them or providing them with safety equipment and they get seriously sick; 50% or a million, whichever hurts the CEOs bonuses the most. Oh, and the should be a law in place that no company executive can get a bonus in a year where the company has been fined a percentage of their revenue. Maybe also force them to move the maximum amount of money that they could be fined into escrow whilst the company is defending their actions in court, that way it hurts as much as possible as soon as possible and might cause companies to want a speedy trial, thus keeping costs down for the agency issuing the fine. No need to waste taxpayer money after all.

Romans 3:23 states: "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;". We are all sinners, that have committed at least one sin in our lives, which earns us an eternal punishment in Hell. Revelation states 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.". God sent his Son, Jesus, to Earth as a perfect sinless sacrifice. To take on all the sins of the world; both past, present, and future sins. Shedding his blood on the cross as a blood atonement for all sins. After dying on the cross, he rose from the dead on the 3rd day and rose to Heaven. To show life after death. To show everlasting life through Jesus's sacrifice. John 14:6 states: "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.". Romans 10:13 states "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.". Eternal life in heaven is just one prayer away. All you have to do is believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died on the cross for your sins. As an atonement for your sins. And rose from the grave on the 3rd day. Ask Jesus to save you of your sins and give you eternal life in Heaven. Salvation is a free and everlasting gift from God. Please don't let pride drag you into eternal punishment in Hell, but ask Jesus to give you eternal life in Heaven. If you're getting a strong feeling of resistance while reading this, it's because Satan doesn't want you to get saved. He wants you to resist, and think it's not real. He wants you in Hell for all eternity with him. Hell is not a fun place, like worldly people like to imagine. It's everlasting torture with no relief. I'm only taking the time to text this, because I want to get the message out. There are so many distractions in life keeping people from witnessing to other people. Keeping you from thinking about salvation. Keeping you from thinking about life after death. Please, ask Jesus into your hearts to save you of your sins and cleanse you from all unrighteous. Ask him for a place in Heaven, and he will save you from eternal damnation in Hell.

It's very interesting, that meatpacking and generally butchering is often connected with awful working conditions - as if something is fucked up with the whole industry and pricing of meat. There have also been several cases of corona-related revelations of violations of work safety and health here in germany. This shit needs to be unfucked :(

Automation would help but it will increase the cost, by quite a bit, which you consumers will complain and switch to competition. Food industry is really cut throat and margins are low.

The reason this pandemic happened by a zoonotic disease is due to eating animals. Why tf is anyone surprised why 'murdered sentient being packers' have the highest virulent rates and deaths?? The consumption of meat is absolutely unnecessary. Animal agra is devastating the environment, our healthcare system (due to all the ailment it causes), and yes its a f****** cruel and sadistic industry that lies to people and deceives the public with misinformation. One day these psychopathic CEO's will be on trial for not only for the pain and suffering of animals but now over exploiting their workers knowing their being sent to their deaths.*SEE THE PATTERN HERE??*
