Apparently Henry's Turkey Service was basically keeping these men as slaves (they were paid $65 a month), keeping them in cockroach-infested dorms, beating them, etc. (I can't imagine this company has high regard for the turkeys involved either, although that's not this story.)

Wow, I never thought I could give a flying crap for people who choose to work in those places. That just changed.

Always nice to remind people that places that abuses animals, usually aren't to kind to their people either.
