And that's not all Agriprocessors court appointed trustee is up to.
Several Postville sources have told me Agriprocessors workers have been 'terminated' and then immediately rehired for much lower wages.
Workers making $13 per hour were 'fired' and then immediately 'rehired' at $9 per hour. Their job descriptions remain the same.
At the same time, Postville city officials have publicly complained that Agriprocessors has cut off all contact with the city.
Sources also claim First Bank has cut off Agriprocessors' financing. This means that, unless new financing is secured in the next several days, Agriprocessors could be shut down and forced into Chapter 7 liquidation.
Agriprocessors' court appointed trustee, Joseph Sarachek, did not return a request for comment.
