Working in Their Sleep: Meatpacking Workers in Arkansas

"In her sleep, Daniela works just as she does when she is awake. In her dreams, she puts on layers of protective gear: the plastic gloves, the cloth gloves, and the metal glove. Then she grips the knife and begins to cut chicken. Sometimes she wakes up covered in scratches from having worked through the night"

- Alice Driver, Working in Their Sleep, New York Review of Books, 2023
