Here is the headline at the Wall Street Journal yesterday:
Tyson Turns to Robot Butchers, Spurred by Coronavirus Outbreaks
One of the huge changes coming to America thanks to the Chinese virus is, I predict, a much more rapid pace of automating many factory jobs.
If you are a longtime reader of RRW you know that the meatpacking industry is one of the major forces driving the US Refugee Admissions Program. The low skill refugee workers are legal and desperate for work, but all that could come to a screeching halt as I said here last month and in May here as the meat industry and food processing companies generally are forced to use machines that don’t get sick or quit!
Here are the first two paragraphs of the WSJ article (I don’t subscribe, so I can’t see it all), but you get the drift.
SPRINGDALE, Ark.––Deboning livestock and slicing up chickens has long been hands-on labor. Low-paid workers using knives and saws work on carcasses moving steadily down production lines. It is labor-intensive and dangerous work.
Those factory floors have been especially conducive to spreading coronavirus. In April and May, more than 17,300 meat and poultry processing workers in 29 states were infected and 91 died, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Plant shutdowns reduced U.S. beef and pork production…
Since I said in my post at ‘Frauds and Crooks‘ yesterday that it is time to prepare for the worst, stop buying meat from any of the big globalist companies that are behind the importation of more impoverished people (like the Congolese from Africa) who will be voting for Democrats, or worse marching with BLM!
And, think about it, what are we going to do with hundreds of thousands of low-skilled and largely uneducated needy people that BIG MEAT is going to drop on the labor market?
See my extensive archive on Tyson Foods and how it has been changing America one meatpacking town at a time (and working hand in glove with refugee contractors to do it!).
If you like to eat beef, pork and poultry, find a local source NOW and get stocked up!
