where, how and by whom our food is produced. Seems that some in America still prefer the slavery system.
Since the late 1970s, Henry's Turkey Service has been shipping mentally retarded men from Texas to Iowa to work in the West Liberty plant. Henry's has acted as the workers' employer, landlord and caregiver — paying the men a reduced wage for their work at the plant and then
deducting from their pay the cost of room, board and care. Payroll records indicate the men are left with as little as $65 per month in salary. - DesMoinesRegister
