We want to start up important discussions about building an animal friendly and sustainable world, so comment below or let us know on twitter what you think about the above question.
One of the most common arguments put forth to vegetarians and vegans is that getting rid of the meat industry will destroy so many jobs and lives. We think differently. From the industrial revolution to the invention of the iphone to internet banking to the global brunch boom, humans have managed to change, adapt and thrive in new and adapted industries throughout history.
Economic growth, technology and automation have already changed so much in our lives and made many previous jobs redundant, but in their place blooms so many new opportunities that allow us to focus our talents elsewhere.
Thousands of workers in mass meat industries are subject to hours of commute, questionable OH&S conditions and experience post traumatic stress from the nature of their work.
Just imagine if those industries could be changed to those that produce vegan food, or shifted to local vegetable crops that allowed workers to work and live near their familes. These are just food related changes; what other possibilities in this industry or others can you think of?
