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 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.

@Anurag Chakraborty I would agree that making changes to working conditions in order to win a bet would be demented. And if you were to actually READ my comment you will see that I said betting on a number would be okay ‘as long as they weren’t doing anything to try to manipulate the number’. Making such a bet is exactly the same thing insurance companies do when the sell you insurance. They are making wagers on a your health. Based on statistics. And THEY cheat because the put a 8spread’ on those bets and as a whole THEY DON’T LOSE! Your comment demonstrates nothing other than you don’t pay attention.

Say an executive betted that more than 2000 workers would fall ill. Then say he lifted safety measures so that 2000 workers would easily fall ill and he would win his bet. This of course is shocking, because the people in power are endangering lives just so that they can win in an f***ing demented 'bet'.
