Kosher Plant Files for Bankruptcy

The ICE raid at Agriprocessors, Inc, an Iowa kosher meatpacking plant, netted over 300 workers who were undocumented aliens. But it also netted a host of problems for Agriprocessors -- charges that it violated state labor and wage laws, a federal indictment for the manager, a campaign to get it decertified as a kosher plant. Now comes an attempt by management to stave off foreclosure by filing for protection under Chapter 11 bankruptcy. (See NY Times article.)
