Worker’s Try To ‘Expose’ Chick-Fil-A On TikTok Is An Utter Fail

On its website, Chick-fil-A proudly touts its commitment to serving high quality chicken without hormones and antibiotics and raising chickens with their wellbeing in mind. But even if the customers can breathe a sigh of relief with the poultry pieces in their soup, that doesn’t mean that the meat is completely problem-free. Perhaps the employee whose exposé failed on TikTok was just trying to milk the wrong controversial cow.

One could argue that the real chicken story is that the plumbing workers at Foster Farms in Compton, California were preparing for a strike. The problem, as the Associated Press writes, is that a new contract has left workers with 20% of all healthcare costs in this dangerous industry. The plant supplies chickens for Chick-fil-A as well as poultry products for Walmart and Costco.

The decision comes about nine months after a study shared by the WFPL found that poultry farms that received government permission to increase their production rates also doubled the rate of COVID infections. It’s another example of how the work it takes to get the chickens to Chick-fil-A and the rest of the industry can take a heavy toll on the employees.

However, as Poultry Times reported in May, the plants responded to the labor shortage by trying to make themselves more attractive to potential employees. If Foster Farms takes note, a bright future could consist entirely of trivial videos of non-stories about slightly older chicken being used in soups.
