Joe Biden wants to import at least 125,000 refugees next year, so offering a huge inflow of cheap disposable labor to meatpackers, farm companies, retailers, and other low-wage, low-tech employers.
For more than 100 years, people fleeing war zones and abject poverty have put in long hours at the eight-story plant that churns 24 hours a day alongside the tree-lined Big Sioux River.
Trump’s reduction in the cheap labor supply also reduces pressure on employers to raise productivity.
Costco built a highly automated meatpacking plant in which two shifts of roughly 400 employees will produce two million chickens per day, mostly for West Coast customers of Costco’s $4.99 roasted chicken.
My immigration policy is built around keeping families together, modernizing the immigration system by keeping families [together], unification, and diversity as pillars of our immigration system, which it used to be.
Coronavirus hits US meatpacking plants hard b/c gov't provides dependent (so low wage) migrants who work & live in cramped spaces.
But Euro plants must pay higher wages, so are more automated & less prone to disease.

A Chinese company runs a huge, labor-intensive, low-wage, diseased, and unsafe meatpacking plant in South Dakota,
So the NYT's progressives ignore Americans & praise the exploited immigrant workforce as disposable martyrs for diversity.
Same with #H1B https://t.co/lNzBdkyVtp
