In Greeley, Colorado, workers at a JBS meat processing plant held a wildcat strike Friday, demanding better pay and safety improvements amid the pandemic. The work stoppage came after hundreds of plant employees tested positive for COVID-19, with six dying of the disease. In April, President Trump ordered meatpacking plants to stay open despite health risks to workers.
