This is an example of the immense damage a single employee can do to a company. One disaffected worker ruined 27 tons of chicken. The size of the damage is understandable when one considers what one chicken weighs -- about five pounds. This person ruined the product of several giant chicken houses. The article doesn't state what the grievance was that caused the individual to go over the line, but it is a reminder that a company is only as good as every employee in it. One wonders about the state of employee relations at the processor and whether workers understand the absolute need for cleanliness in the lines. If they do, then this worker's action was especially egregious and he or she deserves dismissal and legal punishment.
