Proposed settlement for former turkey plant workers

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL)--The U.S. Department of Labor wants an Iowa turkey processing plant to pay $1.7 million to former workers.

Henry's Turkey Service is accused of abusing and underpaying several disabled men. The proposed settlement would give each of the 31 men at least 50- thousand dollars.

The plant housed the men in a dilapidated bunkhouse in Atalissa and put them to work at the plant in West Liberty.
