    As you give it, that at the end of this time we no longer have humanity or personality. All that is left is our physical body.

    I looked at the piece you refer to on the Bloomberg website; what the man is saying is 'after 90 years in this business they are treating us like 'a piece of meat' in other words, not as human beings.
