U.S. Kills 25 Million Chickens for Food Every Day
In the eyes of executives at the world’s biggest meat companies, slaughterhouse workers are disposable, just like the animals they process. Every year, 65.8 billion chickens live and die on factory farms. They spend their lives crowded into industrial feeding operations where they barely have enough room to flap their wings. Many suffocate and die to due overcrowding. It’s sad and sadistic, to say the absolute least, and slaughterhouse workers are not immune to the brutal conditions that the factory farming industry tries so hard to keep out of the public eye.
