We’ve all worked for others before so we know what happens when the boss comes in the room.

Or – when we notice a police car on the highway.

Or – when mom walked up the stairs when we were kids.

Or – when Hans Blix wanders the desert in search of WMD.

So the fact that slaughterhouse workers are hiding things from inspectors should really be no surprise. It’s just icky.

Slaughterhouse workers watch every move of federal inspectors. They know when they take bathroom breaks. They use the radio to alert one another to the inspector’s every step. They even assign the pretty talkative woman to work next to the inspector to distract him from his mission to safeguard the nation’s food supply.
