Prepare to meat your maker!
“U.S. companies exported a record 129,000 tons of pork to China in April, even as meat producers warned that the effects of the coronavirus pandemic would deplete the industry’s supply chain, the New York Times reports, citing data from Panjiva.
Why it matters: U.S. consumers had to deal with meat shortages as many meatpacking plants became coronavirus hot spots. The industry lobbied the Trump administration to intervene to reverse plant closures mandated by local and state officials.
Yet despite their public warnings of an impending shortage, meatpackers did not disclose “that keeping the plants open would also protect their long-term investments in exporting to a country that is vital to their growth,” according to the Times.Since the outbreak began, 25,523 meatpacking workers have tested positive for the coronavirus, while 89 have died, according to the Food & Environment Reporting Network."
With Covid-19 there is no “Picnic” . . .
If you’re gonna do it, go the whole hog.
If they treat the humans that way, I hate to think how they treat the meat animals.
The Trump admin lied. They spread corona and killed workers with their phony meat shortage. They refused to allow testing. This is all totally insane.
Personally I am sick and tired of psychotic republicans killing Americans.
