What a pity that a packing plant/slaughterhouse is considered as desirable employment. Historically speaking they are the worst jobs with the highest turn over rates, injuries, employee suicide, alcoholism, depression and domestic violence.

And ethically speaking - These places of animal killing have already hit bottom.
