    No, the title isn't some lead-up to a joke, lol.

    I'm watching this video, and it got me thinking, so I figured I'd run it by the demographic most likely to be farmers.....you guys. :supergrin:



    I get it: the guys a comedian. From what I gather, he's like a British Bill Maher. And you don't even want to see his video about Ferguson and the Michael Brown incident.

    But it's a pretty disturbing video, if you ask me.

    I know Free Market is great. But when I hear stories like this, I start to question the need for more regulations and checks over Corporations. Especially when they're bullying the very people who provide their products.

    But that's the extent of my interest. So debate away.

    Are all the contract chicken farmers doing badly or just some?

    It is the same old story of companies making a great sounding sales pitch, get rich quick, but then the reality is much different.

    Exactly - not terribly different from MLM in terms of poor return. As a business consultant friend of mine remarked on franchising, it's just buying a job.
