Bad news for Agriprocessors:
Iowa state labor officials are turning over 57 cases of "egregious" child labor violations to IA Attorney General with the recommendation that they are prosecuted to "the fullest extent of the law."
Each of the 57 cases has multiple child labor violations in each case. Further investigation results may unturn additional cases, they say.
You can bet on IA attorney general Tom Miller, folks. Personal connection: Mr. B.E. taught him. B.E. was notorious for being a tough/fair prof with very high standards (who taught ethics), and he will publically praise Miller at any opportunity. That is rare, indeed.
So do what you do when you get good news. We haven't won yet, but things are indeed looking up. Nice follow-up to yesterday's hopeful reflection from H. Zinn.
