The Jungle

So I was driving on the South Side of Chicago the other day, wondering how meat gets processed now that the stockyards are closed. My Sunday Tribune answered my question. Immigrant workers, underpaid and exploited, working in unsafe conditions until they are injured and cast aside. I especially love the part where the 16 year old lost the use of his thumb in an industrial accident.Things haven't changed much since the Jungle.
