With 8 billion chickens eaten in America each year, the demand has gotten so high that companies are going to the EXTREME to ensure a product is delivered.
#2 No Bathroom Breaks
An Arkansas poultry plant has gotten into trouble after it was revealed they were no longer allowed to have breaks, so instead they wore pampers instead.
#3 Forced To Wear Diapers
“I had to wear Pampers,” worker Dolores said to the Oxfam America. “I and many, many others had to wear Pampers.”
