Using the “we are a family” term on a workplace is emotional manipulation tactics. Criminals do it too. Saying we all family in this money life funding situation called work. Don’t fall for it. Especially co-workers that like to refer to you as a relative like brother/sister son/daughter whatever. Titles like that on non-relatives should take years and or some significant life-impacting events to build. The ppl that put those titles on you do so as a way to emotionally control you, forcing you to be loyal, so when they mess up you think twice about reporting them or you feel compelled to cover for them. If someone you barely know well start using that family terminology, think first “did I do enough of anything to earn that from them? Did this person skip over friend and go straight to family?” Suspect! Also, another manipulation tactic, someone you barely know start revealing their secrets. Like really, we worked for 1month and you trust me? They do this so you fall for it and open up about your life. Cops do this shit when interrogating suspects. Offering up something that is worthless to them but you perceive it as valuable and think “wow this person really trusts me and opens up to me. I should reciprocate it seems safe” NOPE! And they be the same ppl quick to accuse you of “having a wall up”. Fucking mind games. My response is, “why do you think you privy to be let over that wall?”

Organize and unionize! That goes for workers all across the country. "The Market" will never regulate itself. When the federal and state governments cut funding for inspection agencies, they won't be able to make inspections. And when the governments make laws that prohibits inspections, and when the fines are equivalent of us paying 0.0002 cents for parking tickets, you know that the system is broken. Such working conditions, in which people get badly hurt on a daily basis, are appalling! You know how politicians and everyone keeps saying that the US is the greatest, freest and most democratic country in the world? That's simply and absolutely not true. It's the greatest for those who have money, who can buy cheap labour, without a second thought given to workers' safety and well being. You are disposable. You need to organize and unionize!

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.

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.
