Big Packers

Sounds like they're 2 cheap to try to clean up the covid issues effecting packing plants. 

They're Not testing workers and at some plants the help is elbow to elbow again. 

The illusion is that workers are being tested and temps taken daily. 

Oh well,  typical corporate USA... Anything to save $1.

There are 27 big plants that have  covid issues... Run by bout 6 packing corporations. 

2 bad the 830 smaller plants are not allowed by the fed to just suffice as fed inspected.  

Sell product across State Lines. 

State inspection is thee same as fed.  HIVAC,  keep it cold keep it clean.

Re: You have to admit that it's sweet deal for the packers.

  You have to admit that it's a sweet deal for the packers, trump has absolved them of any legal liability for their employees' sickness & death, in a few weeks they'll all either be recovered (& immune) or dead.  What are there, about 50,000 total employees?  With a death rate of 1-3 %, that means 500-1500 dead and rest immune. 

   But given the fact that 80% are migrants, legal or illegal & the remainder the working poor, they're all pretty much expendable anyhow.

  But it doesn't matter much, the meatpacker employees are just the template for how it's going to go with the remainder of the workforce, anyhow.  In a few weeks, the workers will either be sick, dead or immune.  I'm surprised that trump didn't just declare every job essential and save all the fuss.

Re: You have to admit that it's sweet deal for the packers.

 

I figure it's at the point that folks just will not work in packing. 

Corona clusters from plants have sickened 11000...workers families etc.  .

Been several corona deaths etc.. 

It's a death march job that does not pay much.
