A former worker at the northeast Iowa meatpacking plant that was raided by immigration agents last week is making allegations about management. During the course of an interview conducted Thursday at KPVL Radio in Postville, a former employee of AgriProcessors stated he purchased false documentation at the plant.
After working for a year and being paid in cash, an AgriProcessors supervisor approached the man and asked him if he would like to have a raise and be paid by check. When the employee told the supervisor he had no documentation, the supervisor informed him he could provide a Social Security number and a name for the employee for $150.
ICE officials raided the plant on Monday, May 12th, arresting 394 undocumented workers and have begun charging them individually with the criminal charge of aggravated identity theft.
