This is a very interesting interview with a man who actually worked on a kill floor. Though the slaughterhouse he worked in processed cows, still the principle is the same.
Timothy Pachirat, Assistant Professor of Politics at The New School for Social Research and the author ofEvery Twelve Seconds, is not the first to see industrialized violence and political analogues in the slaughterhouse. But rather than write an exposé, he took a job at one to see how it works from the perspective of those who work there. I interviewed him about his experiences on the kill floor.
