A group of mentally disabled workers will be paid $240 million for damages suffered during their time working at a West Liberty Turkey Plant.

A federal jury ruled that Henry’s Turkey Service violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when they paid 32 mentally disabled workers only $65 per month for their full time work on the turkey processing line.

The men were removed from a run-down bunkhouse in Atalissa over three years ago and an investigation into the company began.

The Texas based company will pay each man about $7 million.
