Kosher Meat Processors Face Arrest and Fines

The Jewish Daily Forward Author , Marissa Brostoff Posted: Nov 03, 2008


POSTVILLE, Iowa The Kosher meat giant curtailed its operations as legal authorities arrested the former CEO, reports the Jewish Daily Forward. The federal government took Sholom Rubashkin into custody Thursday on charges of helping undocumented immigrants procure false identification to work in the Postville plant. A federal affidavit alleged that Rubashkin lent supervisors $4,500 to pay for fake i.d. cards. The arrest came a day after the Iowa labor commissioner ordered the company to pay $10 million in fines for failure to pay its workers properly, mainly by forcing workers to pay for their own uniforms. The company had stopped processing beef before the arrest, a serious blow since the plant is the sole supplier of kosher beef to many parts of the country.
