GAO says climate of “fear” in chicken plants where refugee workers are part of the workforce

We have been reporting for years about the meatpacking industry, what we call BIG MEAT and BIG CHICKEN, having discovered the great advantages of hiring immigrant and refugee laborers (foreign-born the GAO calls them) who will work for lower wages (this industry once did pay good wages) and complain less than American workers who understand […]
