AP Report on the Henry's Turkey Trial
See this story, which begins:
A Texas company profited from dozens of mentally disabled men working at a turkey processing plant in rural Iowa where they were physically and verbally abused and forced to live in filthy, rodent-infested conditions, a government attorney told jurors on Tuesday.
Employees of Henry’s Turkey Service engaged in “shocking and disturbing employment actions” that violated not only the Americans with Disabilities Act, but a code of basic human decency, said Equal Employment Opportunity Commission attorney Robert Canino.
He said the company should compensate 32 former employees who were mistreated while Henry’s supplied them as contract workers to West Liberty Foods in West Liberty, Iowa.
