Re: Iowa Ag-Gag Law Overruled

SW, the problem is the business model for some large dairies, egg crackers, sow units and such is to hire below what most Americans would work for. In the Eagle Grove, Iowa chicken factory, those illegal aliens were taken advantage of, paid in all the eggs they could eat and the halfway "legal" foreman would take advantage of the women workers for not turning them over to ICE.  


But, it`s agriculture`s baby because it isn`t Fred McMurray and Claudia Colbert as chicken farmers in a Ma & Pa Kettle movie.  It`s changed and specialized and labor costs are where the money is made.  I Love capitalism, however in agriculture there`s many examples of the dark side of it.
