Description

A Des Moines Register reports "No one suggests that the meatpacking companies have any direct role in the state's meth problem. The picture painted by authorities and workers is that the plants accidentally bring a concentration of supply and demand to the communities.... Meatpacking officials argue that the Hispanic workers they attract are being used as scapegoats for Iowa's meth problem. And, they say, the meatpacking industry is unfairly blamed for a scourge that seeps into white-collar businesses, too."
