Sounds like you got of easy....
Good point, though.
I spent some time working in a meat packing house. This was a very seasonal business....from Memorial Day through Labor Day, most folks had NO days off...worked all seven days of the week. Week after week.
Then, as quickly as the crush came, came the drop-off in orders. Folks were not only exhausted, they were worrying whether they would get laid off that week, or the next, or maybe be high enough up the "seniority ladder" that they would work all winter.
There was, every year, at the same time, a dramatic increase in accidents. The type where you lose body parts. Company management, ignoring the extensive scholarship on the subject, was unable to understand the roles played by fatigue and distraction in these accidents.
