The Herald-Leader reports on the use of child labor in processing plants in Kentucky and nationwide. The story reveals that as young as 12-year-old children have been hired by Cagle's Keystone Foods. The same practices are common also at Tyson plants in Arkansas and Missouri. The children, who in most cases had entered the country illegally, showed fake IDs and looked older, the plant managers explained. The article reports that, according to the U.S. Labor Department, many chicken processing plants are aware of the fake identities of their immigrant workers. Most plants have policies of recruiting illegal immigrants in the Southwestern border area and even in Mexico.
