JUDGE RULING: Disabled Workers Must Be Repaid
An Iowa judge is ordering a Texas company to repay 32 disabled workers for unfair wages.
It’s been three years since the men were removed from a run-down Atalissa bunk house. The men worked for Henry’s Turkey Service in nearby West Liberty.
Reports show the men were only paid $65 per month for full-time work after Henry’s improperly charged them for lodging and other expenses.
The judge ruled the company must pay $1.37 million in back pay.
