The ‘Boys’ in the Bunkhouse – NYTimes.com


Here is a link to a story published in The Times this week which continues to haunt me.  It’s a full length feature done in multimedia with text and video. It’s a follow on to a case of employer exploitation in the state of Iowa involving several dozen mentally disabled men over the course of 30-years.  The scandal led to the largest EEOC damage award in history, but the larger scandal is that what was done to these men was basically legal. Their story is as sad as it is beautifully told by the Times.
