The New York Times today features an epic account — with accompanying documentary video — of an astonishing story. It's about how a group of disabled Texas men were worked for decades in an Iowa turkey eviscerating plant for $65 a month — and squalid room and board. The case isn't news — it's been developing since 2009 — but the retelling is gripping. It inspires anger, sadness, disbelief and even touches of humor. Recommended. It takes time, but it's worth it. With such a story in plain view so long, you have to wonder if it is singular.
