Convicted Felons: The Meat Industry's Newest Employees

Undercover at Butterball

As if the meat industry didn’t already have enough wrong with it, now there’s this: A poultry slaughterhouse in Stillmore, Georgia has begun to bus in convicted felons to fill its vacant jobs. (The jobs are vacant because the plant was employing illegal immigrants … Fast Food Nation much?)

Now let’s think about this for just a second, shall we? Undercover investigations into slaughterhouses all across the country—like KFC-supplier Pilgrim’s Pride in West Virginia, Butterball’s Ozark, Arkansas plant, and Tyson’s chicken slaughterhouse in Heflin, Alabama—have found workers scalding live animals, tearing their heads off, spraying spraypaint in their faces, and sexually molesting them. Just imagine what kinds of horrific abuse will occur when the workers are convicted felons.

PETA’s own Bruce Friedrich said it best: “Placing animals in the care of convicts with violent histories is like putting children in the care of child molesters.”

    Are they kidding me? See this is why my 13 year old mind wants these poor animals to rule the world one day. I would sure as hell pay extra to see these freaks get spray painted in the face and be sexually molested by chickens. Now that’s something to see!!!!!!

    Not only are their conditions bad enough [ewww, molesting chickens?!?] but let’s go ahead and hire felons, cause everyone knows they’ll work harder and be more honest than illegal immigrants.
    HAH.
