Animal rights vs. worker’s rights

Deadlift day; thinking’s hard.  So have a link to Adam Ozimek writing cogently on a pair of topics I’ve had internet arguments about in the past:

He begins with

I have argued that consumer pressure for better treatment of animals in agriculture is a good thing, but that pressuring for better treatment of workers might lead to worse outcomes.

and proceeds to explain why, in clear and concise terms.

I will however note in passing that the two threads meet at Soylent Green, and I’m not convinced that Ozimek’s two lines of reasoning handle that edge case consistently.  (This is relevant only because it’s the sort of thing I think is funny after deadlift day.)
