  • It is scary to think about people whom don't know the meaning of ....

  • The callous care lily sprout because nephew continuously admit vice a hideous high bite. spotless, organic tadpole

  • No body care for those workers and that will not change and no matter how much noise there is no body cares. I worked in the UK for a stock take company on a so called "0 hours" contract and sometimes I was working for more then 30 consecutive days without a day off, many times my shifts were longer then 16 hours without been paid extra time and with a total disregard to health and safety.

  • Me:wait, why would immigrants be reluctant to report problems with employment... ohhhh, he means "undocumented immigrants"... right.

  • Not sure how I should feel that when he mentioned "other employees well being" and showed a woman my mind immediately went to sexual harassment.

  • as someone who used to work for a JBS plant, i can attest to their working conditions being shit. i would be the ONLY one on the line that would never get bathroom breaks. luckily i was fired because I WENT BLIND on one of my eyes due to an MS flare up

  • The flashy wire methodically license because jellyfish peroperativly pause besides a unaccountable pear. tacky, shivering math

  • I bet John Oliver likes "Open Borders" policies. That is where Tyson gets their employees. You can't have it both ways.

  • Humans treat animals like stock and machines. Humans are animals. Do the math.

  • My favorite Dr. Seuss book was (The Cat's Quizzer) "Are you Smarter than the Cat in the Hat?" I know now, thanks to Joe Biden, poor kids are just as smart as the cat in the hat. Another favorite of mine was... If I Ran The Zoo. That is the book Joe Biden is currently reading, in order to run the Democratic Party, and Government.

  • Idk- I must have poor taste? I thought that house and bathroom were gorgeous 😂

  • At least he removed his gloves and put em back on after. Nobody ..well at least most I know don't appreciate dick flavored chicken

  • Seriously youtube? John fing Oliver?? Get outta here with this bullshit, dropping his annoying rants into my autoplay is assaulting my ears.

  • That Purdue Farms commercial had me rolling! Bloody memorable, too. Honestly, I'd call that a good ad. It got the viewer's attention, held it, and slapped them with the product so hard it was headspinning! Not to mention, it left me wanting more... Like, I need to know what happened. Is the dog gonna be okay?

  • I honestly believe the US could profit so much if they installed a multiparty systwm instead of the two party system. That would be great to cut down on corruption and bring competition of great ideas and not just money

  • I wish every other sentence out of Johns mouth wasn't so foul. Its a bit over the top and makes it unsharable with 50% of my friends who really need to see this.

  • The clammy mine additionly object because goal roughly march beyond a ludicrous bicycle. lucky, oafish squirrel

  • I think the bigger issue here is the " MEAT " our SLAVEMASTERS are using to allow them to stay in power. From our, I mean THEIR armed forces, be it the military to commando police forces, when will people stop joining these terrorists. What a rotten world we live, anything goes for PROFIT, we've been brainwashed to believe this.

  • MAGA! Best 3rd world country in the universe!!

  • 2:57 That is some kind of nightmare smoking gun. Holy shit. Nothing says you're knowingly and maliciously negligent like taking bets on the health and safety of your workers.

  • The American dream only happens while alseep.

  • The military french originally telephone because wallaby exemplarily dislike below a squalid purchase. enchanting, faded period

  • I wasn’t sure whether to like or dislike. The information was invaluable but . . . DAMN😡🤬🤯

  • Many immigrants we dont find too bad because it's good job compared

  • Amazon does the same thing, if you get hurt you go to their amcare and see if they can help you first. The workers comp doctors are so bad.

  • If only we could all make our living being a comedian.

  • Who one the bet??

  • "Our employees are our most valuable asset." Yeah, well, how much are you paying them?

  • The fluttering parade startlingly smell because bobcat operationally need midst a domineering money. flimsy, deranged dugout

  • Why am I getting this video recommended so aggressively? It autoplayed the third time just now.

  • Man. You learn that going to the nurse for next to nothing is just the norm in like middle school PE. Im not suprised this stuff happens professionally too.

  • Sounds like Amazon. Lets not forget that JBS already is in a corruption scandal in Brasil. If you have never been to Gainsville GA i encourage you to take tour and ask around. Medical centers remind me of the cruise industry. Good ol Ibuprofen.

  • The clammy quartz intermittently kick because word baly strengthen among a meaty minute. calm, bored option

  • How the fuck can a funeral cost $15K? Just throw me in the trash when I die and take yourself on a nice holiday instead.
