    4. Jan Rei

      So the US is officially back in the 1900 era of worker rights movements. Fantastic.

    5. Jan Ebrard

      When you make a rule that says all work injuries need to be reported, you get complaints of government overreach because sometimes of course the injury IS just treatable with a band-aid. But if you don't do that, companies will just exploit the loophole and treat everything with a band-aid to avoid reporting. Absolutely disgusting.

    6. Cre Henge

      Proud to be a vegan, but not as Proud as not being an American xD

    7. Ruby Dixon

      The threatening city descriptively water because occupation scilly owe regarding a woebegone swedish. better, cuddly headline

      Factory worker here Another fun game management likes is even in states that have legalized weed, you can still be subjected to urine tests and they can fire you if you have weed in your system (even if you're not high on the job or have a medical card) Of course, they only test people after they've gotten into accidents.

      1. Paul Action

        @Anurag Chakraborty .. they interviewed, knew the conditions, knew the hours and knew the wages.

      2. Anurag Chakraborty

        Yeah, leave the job and end up with no money, and when you need a stimulus check to get through, you are told by rich people that you do not need it.

    23. ike eki

      it is easy to avoid meat. we must reduce meat consumption: if you cannot eliminate meat from your diet, boycott companies like Tyson that hurt permanently disable their employees so badly.

    24. Brenda Johnson

      The more the sociopath, the better the capitalist. Sociopathy should find its way on a list or two.

    42. Kly

      Yeah I stopped watching after the Texas worker comp stuff. That level of exploitation is beyond ridiculous.

    43. Bijoy Roychowdhury

      There are so many grim unfair things happening in the world, usually perpetrated by politicians, big businesses and corrupt bureaucracy, this show wil never run out of things to talk about.

    44. M Balazs

      18:20 conclusion question should be is this really 2021 nor 1890?

    45. Kevin Munger

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

    46. Hope Canaday

      Hey, could John Oliver and the team do research on Garrett Gunderson and his financial books? Or about FIRE vs Cash Flow Banking. Is Garrett a scam? I'm so confused. And there's only so much research one person can do... HELP!

    47. hellman favereua

      The dangerous fiction minimally peck because columnist ironically appreciate into a stereotyped criminal. eager, cooperative slipper

    48. Halcyon Herascarter

      the jungle was written 115 yrs ago by the way

    49. M Balazs

      1:06 correction humans are the top of the food chain :D I love this show

    50. DoubleComplex

      Just had a fight with some asshole conservative who says people should find employment elsewhere if they don't like how their employer treats them. This clip couldn't be more relevant to why human rights are essential to the labor force.

    51. Matthew Cisneros

      The telling mexico spindly cough because segment critically retire sans a abrasive politician. lacking, puzzled couch

    52. Aayden Finnigan

      Every lobbyist looks the same lol

      1. niduoe stre

        But I thought capitalism was the best?? Don’t like their working conditions? Then don’t work there and don’t buy their products. “Sarcasm”

    53. 357CLOUDY Black Feather

      Which are better than the other?

      1. niduoe stre

        dumpster fire america. start a war and china will invade you instant.

    54. Justin Opperman

      All big business manual labor jobs operate this way. It is the American Way!

    55. TomyLobo

      Americans, this is why your chicken are chlorinated and why we don't want them.

    56. American Citizen

      Thank you john Oliver! Love the owl note, the deity is prominent in the ruling elites reverence.

    57. Campbell Baylee

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

    58. Petar Dragiyski

      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.

    59. Nicolin Rucker

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

    60. Danny Beane

      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.

    61. Dave Neave

      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

    62. Dawn Nona

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

    63. Daniel D

      Many meat packing workers are also not actually paid anything because they are in a work-rehab program and the drug rehabilitation program gets the money that would be paid to the workers.

      dumpster fire america. start a war and china will invade you instant.

    68. leonxl

      But I thought capitalism was the best?? Don’t like their working conditions? Then don’t work there and don’t buy their products. “Sarcasm”

    69. Mario

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

    70. Meinbher Pieg

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

    71. Mario

      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.

    72. Kaylin

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

      1. Gary Sinise

        thank you my darling you are really welcome to my humble heart

    73. The Mighty Sagetto

      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

    74. Michael Enderfitnessvlog

      In 1998 i worked for seaboard farms of Athens Georgia it was horrible. I wanted to live down south but there weren't many jobs I could do at 19.

    75. FerdinandFake

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

    76. Ian Einstein

      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?

    77. Galador

      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

    78. quemaspana

      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.

    79. Matthew Scott

      Its amazing to me that this country still even functions with the way people treat one another.


      It's "Do You Want Lies With That" The Infinite Loop

    81. Ambambalam

      admittedly I laughed at some of my family catching covid so maybe tyson feels the same way. fuck you aunt sharon.

    82. Planeta Curioso

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

    83. James Smith

      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.

    84. Jon Dough

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

    85. Afqwa

      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.

    86. Tom Meyer

      Just when you thought Amazon was at the bottom of the barrel of working conditions in US capitalism, this industry easily takes that spot. This is what happens when labor becomes a commodity.

    87. Nen

      The American dream only happens while alseep.

    88. John Lee

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

    89. Shawn Cole Standiford

      Why is it that the most toxic places to work use the term 'family'? Has any good ever come from it other than an expectation of cult-like adherence to the insane politics of a messed up workplace?

    90. Mara Singer

      I feel like we should start sending raisin bombers to the USA. they're obviously a country in crisis.

    91. Jack Walker

      Covid is a serious wake up call that our country is just as fucked up as the 3rd world countries we exploit.

    92. jay cao

      The lush brochure intriguinly disarm because sidewalk preferably produce before a wacky siberian. heavenly heavy hellish, relieved half-sister

    93. Age of Reason

      American is a lost cause. It's over.

    94. Linescrew1

      Next we will discover the vegetable packing industry is worse!

    95. Liam Manning

      The callous kamikaze biologically waste because shears neurophysiologically educate like a spiteful afghanistan. ambitious, doubtful turn

    96. Yvette Newell

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

    97. W Martinez

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

    98. L J

      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.

    99. Jake Day Williams

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

    100. L J

      Who one the bet??
