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.

The situation is similiar here in Germany and Austria. To circumvent the work safety rules, the factory workers are sub sub contractors mostly from Eastern Europe.

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!

Going Keto, you eat more meat fat which is more filling, less lean meat, less processed meat, spend less money on meat so you can afford to buy organic meats from local ranchers you know and trust, and lose weight without going hungry.

The fuck happened to Teddy Roosevelt's laws for worker safety and such in the meat packing industry. It was bad then too. He reformed laws and created laws because body parts and such were found in meat packages etc. He did this after reading "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair.. The fuck happened?

It's a little hard for me to feel sorry for people who work in animal agriculture, but something really needs to be done about the higher-ups who treat their floor workers so disposably. Shutting slaughterhouses and meat packing plants down and forcing their owners to change industries sounds like a good place to start.

I think the true problem I'm America is most people rely on other people to survive. This is why I moved to a bigger property with the main purpose to homestead. Growing and raising your own food is something 99% of people don't want to do. Give a man a fish and they eat for one day teach them how to fish and they can eat forever. Stop blaming others for issues we can solve by not purchasing corporate products.

The meatpacking industry sounds horrible, but it's not just the meatpacking industry. It's corporate. I've had jobs where is we were busy there were no breaks. I got written up for going to the bathroom twice, while customers were waiting. I've seen people get fired because they got an injury. But I'm pretty sure the meatpackers have it worse since they are being taken advantage of if they are immigrants. But anyone that's ever worked a line knows you can't leave to piss, so it really is not surprising to me that people would were diapers, no joke, I've thought about it. People are being treated like machines in every low-level corporate job and people are treated as disposable, especially in rural places where work is hard to find.

I've read about a foot down the list of comments; so far, no mention of meatless Mondays. We live in Pottersville (It's a Wonderful Life) and a grubby bunch of "garlic eaters" the lot of us. Capitalists depend on a docile, easily-duped populace devoid of any capacity or desire to act rationally. George Bush the afterthought confirmed this serf-building sentiment in his first State of the Union address: "Get down to Disney World in Florida," he said. "Take your families and enjoy life, the way we want it to be enjoyed." Notice he specifically doesn't say the way YOU want it to be enjoyed, which reasonably might be expected to be with a lot less meat.

It sounds like slave labor. What is needed perhaps is a revision to the Emancipation Proclamation and Append Amendments to it that state things like 1) minimum wage PLUS danger money to at least $20 per hour; 2) Workplace safety standards and breaks consistent with a civilized industrial country like the U.S.; and 3) To get rid of shambolic contractual sign-offs that essentially destroy your health, block your legal rights to compensation and even death benefits; and essentially create a violently hostile dangerous workplace environment.

You know - watching this segment has me thinking; with all this bickering we do with each other like opposing terrorist organizations based on political/religious philosophies & such - how IS it we've (and I mean the craziest of 'we") never gone after the owners or CEOs & their 'partners in crime' to make conditions like this a usual thing? - this is absolutely ludicrous. Its like all the laws changed to make work conditions decent back in the 1930s never happened.

I used to work at a Cargill meat packing plant, one of the Union line workers asked his supervisor for a bathroom break five times over the course of an hour the supervisor yelled and screamed and wouldn't allow him to take a bathroom break. The union rep for that worker came over and also yelled and screamed at the worker to get back to work. The worker was an older man in his 60s or 70s...he tried to hold it but eventually peed his pants. More yelling and screaming at him by the union rep and the supervisor. it was one of the worst human rights violations I've ever seen at that Cargill plant. I will never work for them again.

It is really disappointing that just from the beginning of the video you said that the conditions that animals face inside this facilities are terrible, but that they are already "talked enough"... Well no, I couldn't find any single video where you talk about them and how animals are not products to be sold, so let's begin there. I totally understand that workers conditions are so bad as well, but at least this people have a voice to speak up and to act on it. Animals only have their lives and humans still take it away from them. So unfair and so sad that you John Oliver won't dig in this topic because this show is probably supported by sponsors or because your comfort zone and resistance to change won't let you do the changes that are needed for the world to improve in so many aspects, but you probably already know, I wouldn't believe that someone as smart and well prepared like you didn't know about it.
