Interesting! I drive by it often, it smells so awful in the summer that I imagine the people living nearby will be glad for it to close. I wonder what they will do with the current factory - it didn’t say in the article.

Grew up in a small town that had a poultry plant and whenever I visit in the summer it’s absolutely horrible. My first job was actually working there one summer. I would take chicken pieces off the line and be covered in chicken fat, bits and pieces of chicken, and oil from the birds.

The money was really good for someone who had no degree or job experience but it inspired me to go to college.

Yeah, I can still smell that smell and I barely have to drive out that way anymore, so terrible. I do feel for the people who lost their jobs on such short notice.

that probably depends on if they're dependent on a job there or not.

People who process chicken don't typically have a bunch of extra cash to fall back on

My middle school was 100, maybe 150 yards from a plant like this. It was rough.
