Even in the best conditions, meatpacking is a dangerous and tiring job. Meatpackers are at risk for severe cuts or falls on slippery floors. There are also other risks, such as contracting illnesses from bacteria in the workplace. Repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, are also a major problem, as many workers are required to make the same cutting motion many times over the course of a shift. These injuries can be devastating and can keep someone out of the workplace for a long time. In the worst cases, these injuries could keep someone from ever working again.
