Or we could fix our broken food system altogether and move towards more plant-based, which is not only healthier, more just and better for our struggling planet but which would solve the problems explained in this video as a mere side-effect.

The show has always been preachy and extremely biased, but since the doing it in the void bit...it 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. For more information on meatpacking, including what the animals suffer leading up to it, read Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs: An Inside Look at the Modern Poultry Industry, by Karen Davis, and Slaughterhouse, by Gail A.

No surprise that an industry that commodifies animal life for profit cares little for the lives of its human employees. Treating them as disposable inputs. While pretending they're "family".. An abusive family. This is why I switched to eating plants . Preserve your humanity and conscience.

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.”

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!

@PB & J - You need to have your logic module checked. If I have no regard for life, why would I be pro-life? And so you are wrong. I’m actually pro-choice. Strongly so. In fact, not only did a girlfriend of mine have an abortion, but it seems that there was a second case. Not with the same girlfriend though. Just not sure. I honestly do not think abortions are that big of a deal. - Actuarial science involves the use of data in the calculation of the probability of given events happening. Golf tournaments offering cars for hole-in-ones lose no money when a player manages to put that ball in the hole from the tee. The organizers went to an insurance company and paid for an insurance policy. The insurance company that provides such protection KNOWS that hole-in-ones will certainly be made over the course of the season. And they also have data that predicts the likelihood of such an event. Perhaps they even use data about which players are in the tournament and information about each players dispersion patterns from the predicted distance of the hole. And they do the same thing with life and health policies. They look at data and see how likely it is for people to die. I remember when insurance companies offered lower rates for policy holders that didn’t smoke. They didn’t do that as a public service. This would draw customers to whatever company first did this,min the form of non-smokers. And the companies knew that these customers wouldn’t die as often. You can look at it as lowering the prices for those that were going to live, but they were essentially raising the price on those that were going to die. It’s called risk assessment. Would it have made your ‘feelings’ less offended if they had bet on the number of employees that would NOT contract Covid? Probably so, because your logic module is buggy because to get that number an analysis of death rates would have to be performed. And every company that decided to reopen DID THIS FUCKING ANALYSIS. Certainly not with the mathematical rigor that insurance companies, but opening up meant that somewhere, people were going to die. And they opened up anyway because if they didn’t they would go bankrupt. Sure, use masks, social distancing, et, etc, but things things were what they did so their ‘bet’ was a little better. Take this a little bit for it. You know that management had to have a discussion about the dangers of continuing their operation of their meat packing company. And this involved people likely dying. Change the question they asked themselves. Considering that they were talking about how “Well, XX% of our employees will not suffer any negative affects from continuing operations.” Another is saying YY%. Things get heated. One of the managers, the XX% guy, used to work in actuarial science for an insurance company. The YY% manager is a little douche that nobody likes, and is very ‘in touch with his feelings’. But he is also cocky and inherited a lot of money. YY: if we go with your idea and open up my figures indicate we will have YY employees die. XX: That’s bullshit you little douche. I worked in actuarial science for an insurance company for 15 years and the data says that XX% of our employees are going to be just fine and that means that your number of deaths is way too high. YY: you’re wrong. That’s just the way I feel. You need to respect my feelings. Don’t judge me. XX: Look you know we’re going to open back up. If we don’t do companies going bankrupt. Money comes first. And speaking of money, you touchy-feely asshole, put your money where your mouth is. I’ll bet you that that XX% of our employees will be OK and not die. There’s your bet. The touchy-feely douche got in the way of science and reality. He/she was the one that said, ‘Ok, no more than X people will die.’

If you can honestly say you are good, with any of these companies gambling on human life, then, like I have said, you have no moral character.

@PB & J You continue to rant about moral character and yet support it with nothing other that an alternative spelling for a common fruit. Placing a bet on a number that one has no control over and doesn’t even attempted control is no different from betting on a roulette wheel or the guessing a lottery number. Insurance companies make millions of dollars ‘betting’ on your health and/or longevity. Want deplorable behavior? Let them deny your claim after taking your money. Go whine to somebody that gives a shit what you think.
