Meanwhile, a group of over 30 cars with employees, supporters and social action groups gathered across the highway from Perdue in Accomac. Some carried signs but most stayed in their vehicles honking their horns in support while everyone wore masks. The car rally was intended to highlight the concerns of poultry processing plant workers and ask management to do more to protect them. Specifically, employees are requesting the plant close for 2 weeks with pay for employees amid the Coronavirus pandemic on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
