Work safety

Please keep protections for poultry workers.  We may be facing a long period of vulnerability to COVID 19, but more important is the long term safety of these hard working folks on into the future.

And wait, it's not just the employees we're protecting here.  It's all of us!

We know from Ebola, SARS, MERS, that viral spread of disease is part of life for humans.

The higher costs imposed by extra safety measures are more than outweighed by savings from preventive health of the public.  The costs will be passed on to be paid by all of us in purchasing our food -- fairest outcome and the only smart thing to do.
