What's kosher anyway?

One more thing for seder... This was read at our ceremony/meal last night:

Rabbi Levi Yitzhak of Berditchev discovered that the girls who kneaded the dough for the matza drudged from early morning until late at night. Thes he cried aloud to the congregation gathered in the House of Prayer: "Those who hate Israel accuse us of baking the unleavened bread with the blood of Christians. But no, we bake them with the blood of Jews."

The rabbi pronounced the matza tref [not kosher] because it was produced by oshek, the oppression of workers.

I'm sure the Genetech cafeteria workers ostensibly employed by Guckenheimer would agree with the rabbi. Their working conditions are unholy indeed.
