Organize and unionize! That goes for workers all across the country. "The Market" will never regulate itself. When the federal and state governments cut funding for inspection agencies, they won't be able to make inspections. And when the governments make laws that prohibits inspections, and when the fines are equivalent of us paying 0.0002 cents for parking tickets, you know that the system is broken. Such working conditions, in which people get badly hurt on a daily basis, are appalling! You know how politicians and everyone keeps saying that the US is the greatest, freest and most democratic country in the world? That's simply and absolutely not true. It's the greatest for those who have money, who can buy cheap labour, without a second thought given to workers' safety and well being. You are disposable. You need to organize and unionize!

We can 'regulate' all we want. They (the elite) will simply find the loophole, or some other 'legal' maneuver, increase prices for goods and services etc. and basically screw the working class for the plain simple reason: the ludicrously rich enjoy being that way, and no matter how much they have IT WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH!

It is disgusting. And it's all a result of our reliance on employment for survival income creating a lever for employers to exploit workers. Go through the issues presented in this video and ask yourself, how much of this would be happening if people had a #UBI providing enough to meet their basic needs, unconditionally? Would these workers put up with this treatment? Or would they refuse such working conditions, because they can afford to, thus forcing the employers to do better? Regulations can only ever mitigate the problems created by poverty. Only eliminating poverty entirely solves these issues and so many more.

There is no way around what we have to do: 1) Pay more for meat 2) EAT LESS MEAT I have been vegan for 4 years. You all don't need to go vegan, but we absolutely have to decentralize this industry. This is not new information, come on..Eat less meat, shop locally at farmers markets (if possible), vote/ communicate on/ with local politicians, and have the difficult conversations. Change happens slowly

The show has always been preachy and extremely biased, but since the doing it in the void bit...it has been worse, to a point I can't even watch anymore. Maybe this clip talking about something that isn't Trump and republicans is a sign the show is going back to being more informative instead of just another show of people's angry opinions.

No surprise that an industry that commodifies animal life for profit cares little for the lives of its human employees. Treating them as disposable inputs. While pretending they're "family".. An abusive family. This is why I switched to eating plants . Preserve your humanity and conscience.

Disclaimer: I'm a vegetarian with vegan leanings. I am not against people eating meat, per se, but I am definitely against animal death camps and related processes. Clearly, it is bad for the animals, that's a no-brainer, but rather than wanting to point my finger at meat eaters, I would invite them to get their meat produce from more ethical sources. Sure, it will be more expensive, but less meat in your diet is healthier for you and better for the environment and ultimately better for the demographics that end up in the squalid jobs (faux slavery) shown here.

Grateful that a horrendous colonoscopy 14 years ago made me go plant-based. I got to thinking about fast food. What if meat cost, say $50 for 1/4 lb of whatever? Then the very people who can’t afford to have Type ll Diabetes, heart disease, etc. would find that eating whole-food-plant-based 99% of the time would eliminate those diseases. Three films (no judgement!!!) I’d recommend include “What the Health,” “The Game Changers,” and “Forks Over Knives.”
