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.

Even though this was a somber subject there was soooo many opportunities for Adam Driver jokes here...I was half expecting it.

The industry that treats lives as a product doesn't care about its workers?? Whaaat??? I'm all for John's suggestions of strongly regulating these factories, but realistically, this industry needs to lose its subsidies and fade out.

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. Eisnitz.

Batheooms: u go before u start work and on ur break even if u dont have to go. That's how u train ur body when it's time to go. Hands hurt: take some tylenol. Construction works always hurt. That's what we do.

I would never work a job that didnt allow you time to go to the bathroom, its ridiculous that people allow this, I understand the need for money but honestly its not worth it, your safety and health is more important.

I'm in Iowa and I'm disgusted at Tysons for this and also I'm surprised i did not hear about this sooner and the reason i am so disgusted is not only the behavior but also since pork incredibly important to Iowa since it is the corn and pork state and this behavior in a pork packing factory is unacceptable especially in Iowa

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.

I just wanted to say it was a sad move to feature the old man dying of covid just to push your point. Really low. The man must have been close to 80 already, just to feature him to push your cause. So low. Not funny at all.

I stopped eating tyson back in 2009. It always made my stomach upset and i just think that chicken should not be that big. One chicken breast can be cut into 4, or if you are really hungry 2. No matter how much you season it tasted like rubbery crap.

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.”

That's why my hard earned money isn't going to the meat industry anymore. I want plant-based companies to thrive and create alternative no-risk jobs for those people.

Anything that has to do with meat is disgusting. Be it breeding, slaughter, packaging or whatever. All good reasons to stop eating meat.

That’s strange I do commercial roofing and any safety rule broken is 130k fine. We just had a guy fall of a roof. 40 feet. He broke both his arms and a few ribs. We got fined 150k

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.

I live in the county in which the JBS plant is located. The vast majority of citizens here are absolutely brainwashed by the republican lie machine and their corporate overlords. It's genuinely sad and terrifying.
