The jungle, by Upton Sinclair was read by me in community college for history class in the 1980s. It left impression on me since then. With what is happening with the meatpacking plants and the lack of protection for workers reminded me of this book. Read it. It’s fiction but it’s based on events that happened to immigrants in the 1900s when our country was becoming industrialized. We cannot go back to where workers have no protection. We are putting meat above the lives of fellow Americans.

@IronMan Yes that to, its always about money and profits. People's lives should matter more, but our world is not perfect. Makes me sad.

@RavenRlyeh I think about it each time I read another news item about regulations being thrown out.
