NBC News premiered a new documentary today titled Slaughterhouse Children, featuring an interview with senior partner J. Larry Stine. Larry is first seen in the documentary 10 minutes into the video and has represented Mar-Jac Poultry for over three decades.
Here's a description of the NBC documentary: In towns across America, children working in dangerous jobs in slaughterhouses is an open secret. Data from the Labor Department says that children are illegally working at alarming rates. NBC News takes you inside these slaughterhouses in an investigation that spans six states, two countries, dozens of interviews, and thousands of pages of public records.
In the interview, Larry discusses the difficulty of slaughterhouse hiring, the pressures faced by immigrants who need the work, and the challenges of companies filtering out ineligible candidates.
