Now the butcher's talk: Re-on-the-spot battles

Hans Wagner would have outbreaks after the Corona in the case of Tönnies and Westfleisch every reason to inveigh against the large enterprises of the meat industry. This is what he does not. Rather, the self-employed master butcher in Hamburg-Eimsbüttel, the slaughtered once with self-pity, the meat manufacturer from Rheda-Wiedenbrück in the district of Gütersloh. "The need to be so ready," says the 80-year-old Wagner, who has made it in Hamburg as a "celebrity butcher" a name.

For the cases of the disease in the slaughterhouse, he does not want to give Tönnies the debt. The Problem, Wagner sees in the behavior of the employees, and not in the labor conditions, for which the contractor is in the criticism. "There are so many people that he can't keep it under control." The Bad thing is that now pork equipment overall, into disrepute. The threatening also Metzgereienwie his own. "Many small businesses can't survive at all," says Wagner, and predicts that the is the latest in the autumn of economically noticeable.

conditions as the normal case

Also, Reichert Thomas, owner of the Frankfurt Delicatessen butcher shop "trotters Reichert", takes the meat manufacturers in the protection: "Tönnies would have nothing if he hadn't done something right." The Problem derWerkverträge with the mostly Eastern European staff, he looks not to the abattoirs is limited. "The meat industry is the smallest Problem," says Reichert. Xed fixed-term contracts are widely used, especially by the state. "What amazes me, is how stations have brought in the battle all through the examination?" This is for all employees in German Slaughterhouses mandatory.

Hard in the court of the Frankfurt butcher goes with the policy, at both national and at European level. The "industry Standard" had been created by the EU. In Germany, political decisions have led to around a third of the pigs are slaughtered in Germany, Tönnies in East Westphalia. The pig meat for his own business Reichertin Bad Camberg in Central Hesse battles. Nevertheless, willer not entirely exclude the possibility that Tönnies-products also go beyond the ladenthe no Frankfurt-Höchst.

Back to the municipal slaughterhouse

the risks of a few large slaughter establishments to prevent, suggests Reichert a radical paradigm shift. "If you take the regionality thoughts in the Hessian Constitution seriously, we would have to build again abattoirs on the spot." Particularly sad was how it is expired in Frankfurt: In 1988, a new slaughterhouse was opened on the southern Bank of the main, yet, the had to be replaced two years later for apartments and office buildings. For Reichert, it is clear that such slaughterhouses would have to be borne by the municipalities, as a part of public existence prevention. "If das600 years has worked, why should the have no future?"

Unanimously, the two butchers are opposed to a proposal by the Bavarian Minister for the environment, Thorsten Glauber. This was after the Corona-outbreaks in the case of Tönnies and westfleisch to slaughter the animals more and more on the pasture, instead of in the slaughterhouse. Bayern is also in the Federal Council for the so-called pasture slaughter strong. "This is complete nonsense," says Thomas Reichert. You can't fight 40 million animals in the pasture. The Hamburg-based Hans Wagner says that I have to work 50 or 100 years ago. But given today's mass production it would be better and more hygienic if the bloodshed is not on the green Meadow, but in the slaughterhouse is done.
