Kosher Slaughterhouse Workers Released Before Testifying Against Company

The Jewish Daily Forward, news report, Posted: Nov 12, 2008

POSTVILLE, Iowa Eighteen workers gained their release from federal prison on condition they testify against their supervisors at Agriprocessors, but they have no ability to survive on their own, writes the Jewish Daily Forward.

The 18 must live in Postville but are not allowed to work. St. Bridget's Catholic Church has stepped up to feed and house the workers. The prosecutors have not provided any support for the workers, and now are sending another 13 workers with the expectation that the church will care for them.

The prisoners agreed to testify in lieu of serving a two-year sentence for using false Social Security numbers. The prisoners say the company sold them the numbers for $125 each, so they don't see how they can be accused of stealing them.
