Iowa JBS workers say they’re packed in too tight to stay safe from coronavirus
Des Moines Register: A Latino advocacy group is questioning whether meatpacking giant JBS is doing enough to protect the 2,700 workers at its Marshalltown pork processing plant, saying employees are crowded on the company’s production floor, in locker rooms and in other parts of the facility. The Iowa League of United Latin American Citizens’ concerns come as JBS USA has confirmed that a worker at its pork processing plant in Ottumwa tested positive for COVID-19; another employee from that plant is self-isolating at home. JBS and other meat processing companies with large plants in Iowa say they’re taking action to protect workers, including checking their temperatures and looking for other symptoms of the coronavirus before employees enter plants; staggering shifts and breaks; and providing more space for workers.
