Perdue workers walk off job after they say company failed to sterilize chicken plant during pandemic

Dozens of workers at a Perdue chicken processing plant in Kathleen, Georgia walked off the job this week after they say the company has not done enough to protect them from the coronavirus pandemic.

Local news station 11 Alive reports that roughly 50 employees walked out of work Monday morning because they did not feel safe staying there.

Employee Kendaliyn Granville tells 11 Alive that she and her fellow workers grew sick of coming into work and seeing unclean bathrooms and food on the floor, despite her supervisorsí pledges to keep the plant sterile.

She also said that people who have been exposed to the virus are still working on the production line.
