I'm glad to see that our gov't changed so much ever since Upton Sinclair wrote about the horrors of the meat-packing industry in 1904... What...? Oh... Nevermind...

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.”

I've said it before and will say it again: if your place of work uses the exact same indoctrination language as a murder-suicide cult, ala "family", GET OUT. They will work you to death with no regard for anything except their own company's appearance.

Dear Mr.Oliver. I have a favor to ask. I understand that in order to be popular in the "great" Britain and "the colonies" you need to dilute serious conversation by adding unfunny jokes every 30 seconds (yes, go ahead, viewers, CHECK). Unfortunately, I have come to like your videos, but, fortunately, I'm neither a brit nor a yank (neither are you, they WILL hang you by the neck one day). Is there any chance you could add a special montage of your videos WITHOUT those every-30-seconds stupid jokes, for people from countries where intellect is not considered a symptom of communist satanism? Thank you.

Sad that this is everywhere. Got a serious neck injury from a machine at a warehouse and was forced to sign a release to get back to work. At barely a living wage... I couldn't afford the time off so signed away my rights to keep a roof over my head. At another warehouse different company, while assembling cheap bbq grills the drill slipped (cheap alloy screw bent/broke) and went right through my hand. Scrubbed out the debris, band aids on both sides since it went straight through, took a day off to keep injury minimally clean but if I went to a doc seeking relief I would be released. For this one I took the loss and saw the doc. Both injuries have come back in bad ways but what am I to do? Keep your head down and keep working if you want a paycheck. I can't afford more medical bills that I can't pay off in this lifetime. This is everywhere. Corporations have taken too much.

I don’t see anything wrong with betting on a number. The lottery does it. Sports bets involve two numbers. As long as they weren’t doing anything to try to manipulate the number, other than ‘downward as much as possible’, what’s the big deal? Not giving adequate breaks? THERE’S your problem!

It's a little hard for me to feel sorry for people who work in animal agriculture, but something really needs to be done about the higher-ups who treat their floor workers so disposably. Shutting slaughterhouses and meat packing plants down and forcing their owners to change industries sounds like a good place to start.

I think the true problem I'm America is most people rely on other people to survive. This is why I moved to a bigger property with the main purpose to homestead. Growing and raising your own food is something 99% of people don't want to do. Give a man a fish and they eat for one day teach them how to fish and they can eat forever. Stop blaming others for issues we can solve by not purchasing corporate products.

The meatpacking industry sounds horrible, but it's not just the meatpacking industry. It's corporate. I've had jobs where is we were busy there were no breaks. I got written up for going to the bathroom twice, while customers were waiting. I've seen people get fired because they got an injury. But I'm pretty sure the meatpackers have it worse since they are being taken advantage of if they are immigrants. But anyone that's ever worked a line knows you can't leave to piss, so it really is not surprising to me that people would were diapers, no joke, I've thought about it. People are being treated like machines in every low-level corporate job and people are treated as disposable, especially in rural places where work is hard to find.
