She makes an interesting point.

This is not an “interesting point” at all.
It is moot and not worth considering whatsoever, for a few reasons…
Veganism does no advocate placing the welfare of animals over that of farm workers, first of all.
Second, people who eat meat, generally eat the same vegetables that vegans eat, and are less likely to buy fair trade.
Finally, people who eat meat are supporting animal agriculture, including slaughterhouses and meat packing facilities, and we all know the workers there are treated sooo well, right?
In other words, this is a crock of shit.

"Vegans don’t care about people that pick crops!"

Chickens may live for five to ten years. Some even a few years longer. Five years equates to 1825 (!) days. Just imagine, they live only 43 out of 1825 days, which nature has intended. That’s approximately 2% of their natural lifespan. Their lives are literally - and rather drastically - being cut short by the demand of people contemptuous of life and the ruthless meat industry. Not to mention the atrocious methods which are put into use to make chickens grow morbidly fast and suffer.
