This year marks the third time MEAT+POULTRY has published the survey of salaries, benefits and job satisfaction since shifting from an annual frequency to every five years. Back in 2010, in the wake of an economic recession that was, at the time, an unprecedented challenge to all businesses across the United States, the survey reflected some of the fallout specific to the meat and poultry industry. Salaries flattened in many categories while salary and hiring freezes were commonplace, and in some cases layoffs were implemented to offset input costs and volatility in certain markets. But 10 years ago, nobody could have fathomed the crippling impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in 2020.
