According to reports, two NJ men are being charged with ‘conspiracy to commit human trafficking related offenses, conspiracy to harbor undocumented persons for financial gain; and violating the Fair Labor Standards Act.’ Not only do they slaughter live animals for fun..theyy harbour illegals and keep them as slaves. Wonderful.
VIA|Two New Jersey businessmen were arrested Wednesday after an indictment was filed in federal court charging them with forcing employees to work at a Halal chicken slaughterhouse in Middlesex County.
Mohammad Abdul Wahid, 54, of Queens, New York, and Mohammed Iqbal Kabir, 42, of Bronx, New York, are charged by complaint with one count each of conspiracy to commit human trafficking related offenses, conspiracy to harbor undocumented persons for financial gain; and violating the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:
From July 2011 through January 2016, Wahid owned and operated a Halal chicken slaughterhouse business in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. The business operated pursuant to Halal practices, which meant that the live poultry was slaughtered by Muslim individuals. The poultry would then be cleaned and prepared for sale by other employees.
During the time that the facility was operational, Wahid and Kabir allegedly employed undocumented persons. The employees were paid approximately $290 a week in cash and would typically work 70 to 100 hours a week, working six or seven days a week. The employees were not paid more if they worked more hours, nor were they given overtime pay.
Wow. It is terrifying that this is only one case closed out of the many that are still operating today.
