You put people on the floor that don't know what they are doing and how much does the kill rate go down?
I'm not saying that the chain speed won't slow down at all but, the turnover rate in a packing plant is fairly high. They train new employees for these jobs all the time.
Most of the jobs on the kill line are very very repetitive, at least in a hog plant they are. You stand in the same spot and make the same couple of cuts on carcasses all day long. Its not like one person fully butchers a hog and then starts another one when the first one is in boxes.
Its hard work but it is not something that needs a lot of training or a real specific skill set.
