The speed kills you

The Voice of Nebraska's Meatpacking Workers
Over the last decade, important efforts have been made to shed light on the conditions of workers within the meatpacking industry and create momentum for change.1 What makes this report unique is that it focuses on what workers see and experience on a daily basis and their thoughts and ideas about what needs to change. What is apparent from this report is that meatpacking workers care deeply about getting this story out to the public in order to improve safety conditions in the plants. We surveyed 455 workers across Nebraska – one of the country's largest meat producers – in order to find out what they most want everyone to know. Despite obvious fears about filling out such a survey, their determination to do so – and their concern for not only their own safety but that of others and the quality of the product – was inspiring.
