Highlight on the Slaughterhouse Industry

The NYTimes has a great editorial reminding us of one of the most important victims of our meaty society: workers! One of the main reasons I am a vegetarian is because of the nasty effects this lifestyle imposes upon other human beings. While I don't really think we should all go Vegan by any means, working toward better working conditions for the already over-exploited immigrant labor community would be a wonderful step. But with consolidation in the industry causing problems all over the place, I can't say I am too optimistic.
