Human Rights Violated

A new report by a Nebraska non-profit group exposes human rights violations in state meatpacking plants.

According to a report released Wednesday by the Appleseed Center for Law in the Public Interest, unyielding speeds on production lines in Nebraskan meatpacking plants put employees at high risk of injury or death. The Sioux City Journal is reporting the Appleseed Center's 104-page findings based on 455 interviews with workers from nine plants in five Nebraska communities in 2007 and 2008. According to the Appleseed Center, many of the workers are non-English speaking Hispanics who consistently experience verbal abuse in a degrading work environment. The report found that injury was seven times more likely than the government estimates.
