House Majority Freshman Caucus Whip
NC House of Representatives
Chris Humphrey, a member of the North Carolina House of
Representatives, cast the deciding vote to kill an amendment
to make meatpacking plants safer for workers, and took a check
Humphrey took thousands of dollars from a meatpacking industry executive and looked out for their profits instead of our health and safety. Meatpacking plants are coronavirus hotspots and, Humphrey’s executive donor ignored safety guidelines and experienced an influx in coronavirus outbreaks.
Humphrey’s disregard for worker safety and our community’s well-being is highlighted through his response to the coronavirus pandemic. Humphrey pushed for the government to open during the first wave. He not only ignored mask protocols, but co-sponsored a bill to give immunity to individuals who violated coronavirus safety orders.
