    You know - watching this segment has me thinking; with all this bickering we do with each other like opposing terrorist organizations based on political/religious philosophies & such - how IS it we've (and I mean the craziest of 'we") never gone after the owners or CEOs & their 'partners in crime' to make conditions like this a usual thing? - this is absolutely ludicrous. 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.

    As disgusting as all of this is, read about the meat packing industry in the 1900s. The book is called "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair. This book inspired, then President Theodore Roosevelt, to establish the USFDA.

Was he one of the ones who lobbied for workers to be ineligible for their unemployment benefits if they believed the workplace was unsafe? Or was he one of the managers who placed bets on which worked would get Covid and die? Fuck that guy, and his industry.

    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. 📈

    When you make a rule that says all work injuries need to be reported, you get complaints of government overreach because sometimes of course the injury IS just treatable with a band-aid. But if you don't do that, companies will just exploit the loophole and treat everything with a band-aid to avoid reporting. Absolutely disgusting.
