    Are people countable, like pigs?
    We have many pigs, many countable things.

    Are people uncountable, like beer?
    We have much beer, much uncountable stuff.

    People are like pigs.

    Obviously the latter is correct. :) Use 'many' for people because you can count them. They are not like water or something that we can't count. ;)
