In Carousel by Lori Hill0 Comments

Lori talks about the documentary “Cock Fight: Meet the Farmer Blowing the Whistle on Big Chicken” about how Craig Watts, a North Carolina poultry farmer for Perdue for 22 years, blew the whistle on their unfair treatment of farmers and the poor conditions chickens endure. It also discloses the abusive contracts farmers often find themselves in with poultry corporations. According to a 2011 study by Pew Research, 71% of U.S. farmers who only grow chickens live at or below the poverty line.
