Counting Our Chickens

Record #:
Poultry is North Carolina’s biggest crop and many residents make a living in the poultry industry. However, many of those workers and farmers who supply the chickens claim the chickens are treated better by poultry companies than they are. Additionally, poultry is not as healthy as the American public believes as many are being exposed to millions of sick birds every year. The industry traps individuals in low paying jobs, exposes them to poor working conditions, and is endangering public health.
