I disagree. I've been in chicken processing plants in eastern PA. The workers were in the US from Puerto Rico on one year contracts, with housing provided by the company. Standing on an assembly line with carcasses moving by you, making cuts with a sharp knife, blood/gore everywhere.

The only people in the plant who were born in the US were the guys walking around with clipboards.

After my visit I couldn't eat chicken for two years.
