From NPR's Embedded: The workers who produce pork, chicken, and beef in plants around the country have been deemed "essential" by the government and their employers. Now, the factories where they work have become some of the largest clusters for the coronavirus in the country. The workers, many of whom are immigrants, say their bosses have not done enough to protect them.

This episode was recorded and published as part of this podcast's former 'Coronavirus Daily' format.
Essential workers are classed by their profession and unfortunately, truck drivers, factory workers , and grocery workers are the lowest in the hierarchy. It’s a shame because in reality we wouldn’t able to survive without their contributions; their well beings should never be overlooked. It’s not fair and inhumane.
