"I see this as a wake-up call" to the industry, Mark Grey told the Los Angeles Times. Grey, an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Northern Iowa, has studied the industry's shift toward immigrant labor for over a decade.

And in the rush to deregulation in the 1980s, the U.S. government largely stood by and let these changes occur, although, according to Mark Grey, a good number of government fines for safety violations have been levied.
Industrywide, the annual employee turnover in today's meatpacking plants is greater than 50 percent and could be as much as 80 percent, Grey told the Times. Companies like IBP count on this high employee "churn," not to mention the sometimes illegal status of their workforce. If an employee is illegal, he is less likely to report his injuries. But even if he is legal, a six-month wait is the industry standard for health insurance to kick in, according to Grey.
