The Argument

Workers in the meat processing industry are in constant physical danger due to the methods that corporations make them employ - the most efficient methods and machinery isn’t always the safest. Most injuries and deaths could have been prevented. Workers are constantly reminded of how they can be instantly replaced and are often made to work overtime to keep their jobs. We should stop eating meat and put an end to the unhumanitarian treatment of workers in the meat industry

Counter arguments

The issue is not the fact that there is a meat industry, the issue is the misconduct of companies in the meat industry. We should not stop eating meat, we should institute more severe regulations and more frequent checks in factories in the industry. Merely terminating the industry would put thousands out of jobs and be considerably worse for the workers
