Why does this not surprise me:

“Reports that there was an expectation of sexual favors at Agriprocessors Inc. are beginning to emerge from workers at the Postville meat processing plant, and advocates for immigrants are trying to document the stories.Sister Mary McCauley, a Roman Catholic nun at St. Bridget’s Catholic Church in Postville, said workers have said that “there was sexual abuse, that there’s propositioning.”

She said she didn’t hear any of the stories firsthand but that others passed along the information to her.

If a worker wanted, say, a promotion or a shift change, “they’d be brought into a room with three or four men and it was like, ‘Which one do you want? Which one are you going to serve? ” McCauley said Monday in an interview with Des Moines Register editors and reporters.”
