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 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.

Thank you, John Oliver, for bringing the evils of meatpacking to light.

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.”
