"Covid  Vaccinations   for  all  US  food  workers"  for all US workers, huh?  What about the illegals?   🙂   Packers claim they can`t tell who`s a citizen, how they gonna tell who`s vaxxed?

Do vac workers? 

Never know who to believe in meat.

The packer Lies... So do the workers... Especially the illegals. 

But the spin sounds good.  LoL

Well ,  maybe  they  won't  have  the  excuse  to  cut  harvest  floor  chain  speeds ,  although   employees  shouldn't  have  high  absentee  numbers  -  will  they -  -  -

If  you  don't  have  fats  to  sell , then  why  worry -  ?

Re: Meatpackers IF they really

Long gone, late Grandpa was a well known and trusted feeder cattle buyer and a feeder from after the War into the 60’s looked me square in the eye when I was very young and said something to the effect of ‘if you are going to get into the livestock business (which I did) the first ting you need to know and remember always is that the packers lie. It’s a occupational requirement.’

Slippery slope.

The farmers who raised the stock will be next.

Then they'll come for your guns.

I occasionally deliver hogs to a Tyson plant in Indiana. It will be interesting to see how this shakes out. I am predicting long lines and possibly a shutdown when a lot of the unvaccinated quit. The job market is way too hot to be forcing vaccinations on an already thin labor pool.
