'Chagall in Postville': Agriprocessors Scandal in Comic Form

This summer's investigation of the worker welfare at Agriprocessors, Inc., was pretty horrific. The nation's largest kosher slaughterhouse employed illegal immigrant child labor and forced employees to work in "slavelike" conditions, including rampant physical abuse from slaughterhouse officials.

Stomach-churning, isn't it? We've got a strong stomach for this sort of thing, and even we found ourselves looking away and needing to breathe deeply for a few minutes.

The trial (and likely conviction) of various individuals involved is currently underway, and in honor of that, artist Eli Valley has revisited the saga in a slightly more palatable form — Agriprocessors, Inc: The Comic Strip.
