Denied Breaks, U.S. Poultry Workers Wear Diapers on the Job


  • `They are in danger of serious health problems,’ report says
  • Tyson says it doesn’t tolerate refusal of restroom requests

Workers in plants run by the largest U.S. poultry producers are regularly being denied bathroom breaks and as a result some are reduced to wearing diapers while working on the processing line, Oxfam America said in a report Wednesday.

“It’s not just their dignity that suffers: they are in danger of serious health problems,” said Oxfam America, the U.S. arm of the U.K.-based global development group. The group works for a “just world without poverty” and focuses on topics ranging from refugees in Greece to malnutrition.  Source
