Quality Pork Processors in Austin, Minn., was featured recently in an article in Mother Jones’ July/August issue examining the company that produces Spam, a canned ham product. The article reports on how the company’s mass production of pork is continuing to rise as workers develop debilitating illnesses caused by the so-called “pig-brain machine” and how workers were fired after being sickened by it. In addition, writer Ted Genoways details the history of the company’s workers rights and union policies.
