POSTVILLE (KWWL) - It's another day without a paycheck for workers of Agriprocessors in Postville, as the community pulls together to help those who are simply struggling to make ends meet.

Tuesday there are job fairs for the workers of Agriprocessors.  Two companies are in town:  Tyson Foods from Waterloo and Swift Meatpacking from Marshalltown. 

The city council issued a citywide declaration of emergency at their meeting Monday night. 

Meanwhile there are rumors circulating in throughout the town that paychecks could be on the way soon, and operations at the plant could pick up next week.
