Companies seem to avoid paying attention to the sanitation of their facilities and tend to neglect their workers health issue possibilities. “The presence of fecal matter from slaughtered animals, which can contaminate meat with high levels of bacteria such as E. coli.”(“Food Processing & Slaughterhouses” 1). In recent years, the production and form that meat has been processed have been more noted and concerning to the public view. Today the public eye is taking in more concern in the processes in which their meats. “1 in 6 Americans become sick with foodborne illnesses due to the horrendous sanitary conditions”(‘Food Processing & Slaughterhouses” 1).
Important Leaders of the Underground Railroad Throughout history, racial inequity has been an issue. In the 19th century, the rights of African Americans were the most prominent racial debate. Many U.S. citizens who were against slavery made their opinion heard by working on the Underground Railroad. The Underground Railroad was not an actual railroad, it was a system of anti-slavery activists that helped slaves escape to freedom (Altman). The people who worked on the Underground Railroad, commonly known as conductors, “faced considerable danger, as "slave stealing" was a serious crime, punishable by fines, branding, and/or imprisonment” (Altman).
Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
At Valley Forge I can smell the stench of the nasty cooking and hear the angry soldiers crying out that there is more meat. Members of the Congress didn’t trust in General Washington. There is a soldier that has worn out shoes, his legs are bare and half naked. Soldiers were healthy but started to grow sick. Deciding not to re-enlist is a choice I made because of the lack of trust, living conditions, illness at Valley Forge.
This meant that people would starve and die because they can't afford to eat. In conclusion Muckrakers brought change to society by bringing to light what was in the darkness. By exposing how child labor had a negative effect on children and society. The meat packing industry was busted for there unsanitary ways. The railroad was exposed for taking from those who could not fight on their own.
In the reading “The Jungle” Upton Sinclair explained the harsh working conditions of the meat industry. Workers such as butchers, beef luggers, and wool pickers payed a huge price for there work. The priced payed for their work included swollen knuckles, lingering odor, exhaustion, disease, tons of cuts/scrapes, wearing or the fingernails, and the dissolving of fingers due to acidity. Just as back during the end of the 19th century as the industry was growing, jobs had harsh working conditions as well such as lack in cleanliness and working in no air conditioning factories. In the reading “The Lowest Animal” Mark Twain explained how man should be considered the lowest animal due to its many flaws.
“Fifty percent of all child deaths are involved in undernourishment”(‘Facts About Hunger And Poverty’). Fifty percent is a huge number, especially when it comes to child deaths. Many people do not pay attention to their surroundings and often do not care that there are people in this world who are dying because of hunger. World Hunger all around our planet is mainly caused by food wastage, but by remembering to not waste after eating, can change everything. World Hunger around the earth is resulting in many people suffering and even dying.
He witnessed all these sick peoples dying and faced extreme hunger. So many things were going through his mind. He had no idea what these men were going to do to them. He believed that maybe they were going to eat them. All this was happening and on top of that he had already lost his sister having no idea where she was or what was happening to her.
The definition of the word slaughter is ‘to kill in a violent or brutal manner.’ (n.d.,2017) In our minds we recognize violence as being wrong and immoral no matter who the victim may be. Unfortunately, disgusting acts are happening every day behind the closed-doors slaughter houses around the world. Many others and myself, believe that theses slaughter houses should be shut down for some obvious reasons. They have horrible living conditions, they are harming our environment, and they are unnecessary for our survival. First of all, slaughter houses everywhere are being exposed for mistreatment of animals.
I think that pitbulls are brought to shelters because a lot of people think that pitbulls are vicious, so a lot more people abandon them. I also think people need to give that animal a second chance at life before giving up on it. Also according to the article about 30% of shelter dogs are eventually claimed by owner, and that 5,000 dogs are killed every day. When people kill and animal I think that they are commiting a murder of an animal, but sometimes life is life and you just have to deal with it. I think that animal shelters need to be bigger so more animals can fit and when an animal cannot fit in the shelter bring it to another shelter it needs another chance at life.
Since news about the Chipotle food poisoning broke, a lot of people became more concerned about the food they eat. The public began to realize that even renowned brands and giant food chains can also be the breeding ground for the next food related fiasco in town. Because of the two outbreaks of Norovirus (a virus that causes diarrhea, vomiting, body pains and fever among others) in Simi Valley and Boston, two E. coli outbreaks, and one Salmonella outbreak in Minnesota, Chipotle is now facing rapid drops in their food revenue, a decline in their stock value, a criminal investigation and a lawsuit. So how can we really avoid food poisoning? According to The Forbes website, if you see even one of this red flags, eat somewhere else!
For example, on page 134, it states “Oh the effects of it were real the rising prices, the shortages of everything, the news that so-and-so had been killed in some far away battle.” This means that everyone is affected no matter what. Most farmers need to buy some of their food, so the rising prices make it harder for them to make a living. Many people will lose their jobs and mostly everyone will be hungry all the time. Its even more unfair because these people don’t want to be in the war, but are feeling the effects of it anyways. On page 190, it says “I didn’t see how they could find Sam guilty, he’d fought for three years, he’d risked his life, how could they decide to punish him for something he hadn’t done?
It was the center of Chicago’s meat packing industry. The town was filthy and living conditions were horrible. The family struggled to find jobs so they could survive. Corruption in the government was very present in Packingtown. By not understanding the language, Americans and Immigrants swindle the family without their knowledge.
Introduction: Bad press is bad for business and a company’s bottom line. The agriculture business in America and around the world has seen heightened controversy due to leaked images of unethical treatment of animals. The industry hit hardest by this controversy is known as industrial agriculture or factory farms. Factory farms are very large centers that produce much of the meat, eggs, dairy, and other foodstuffs we consume. Factory farms have attempted to fight this bad press by sponsoring laws that outlaw the sharing of any images without the farm owner’s permission.
The reason, because it was supposed to hold 6,000 prisoners. But usually held 12,000. Plus, there was not enough food, so the inmates were fed spoiled meat and potatoes, and the lack of sewers meant piles of waste built up which as a consequence meant health was terrible ("ListVerse"). Smallpox, malaria, and other diseases ran like wildfire. However, because of all of this the prison hospital was overflowing with the sick and disabled.
