That’s an awesome thought sir. As a matter of fact, early in my life I worked in a chicken processing plant as a deboner. It was horrible. It was cold. I wore that metal glove and kept a very sharp filet knife. I wore water boots, and had to have a white coat that was worn while in the plant.

It was one of the worst jobs I’ve ever had! I have lived in a mostly rural area most of my adult life and I absolutely concur working in a meat processing plant or some textile plants was as close to slavery as you can get. I have done it all to get here, and never forget where I come from or the people I left behind.
