US Farm Busted Using 'Necro-Powered' Labor.
Pink Hill, NC, USA

Labor in Pink Hill, NC has long been an issue. The small rural town in NC has competed against the lure of the larger cities in the area (Raleigh and Wilmington) in terms of keeping a viable employee base. Although small in population, Pink Hill has a vast agricultural industry, and the demand for its products (largely corn used for feed) has generated a growing need for workers. For many years now, hispanic migrant labor has met this need for workers, as represented by its various mexican restaurants and increasing latin culture.

In the past few weeks however, area farmers might have found a new employee base according to concerned locals: The undead.

Police raid:
A police statement this afternoon revealed that several eye witness reports led to a police raid earlier today. There police found what appears to be an early stage development of a 'zombie labor' farm. Area employers were holding in a corral a small number of undead. Apparently menial labor tasks can be performed by reanimates utilizing what experts call a "greyhound and rabbit" operation. A human volunteer holds the front of an agricultural appliance such as a plow, out of reach of the secured reanimates, they in turn can be coaxed into menial tasks with the hope of reaching their prey. Undead's are routinely hooked up to plows, mowers and other more inventive devices to perform labor tasks reserved for the living in the past. Although there are obvious legal, safety and moral questions regarding the use of the recently deceased, the lure of larger profit and less cost has possibly assuaged many of the usual fears. Recent gas price highs have particularly hit the smaller farmer here in North Carolina. And so increasingly inventive means of saving money seem to be employed to compensate.

The same local and federal laws that were primarily ignored for years regarding "live" illegal immigrant labor are apparently being ignored or overlooked regarding "undead" illegal labor. Local authorities have been slow to look into the complaints and there is a looming feeling that the state prosecutors are under pressure from what remains a very powerful farming lobby in North Carolina to turn their eyes for the moment. The possibility of undead labor here in North Carolina could also have larger implications nationally, including the viability of "Zombie Farms" and the ever increasing undead industry as a whole.

Legal woes:
The use of necrotic's as labor is a new foray into the issue here in NC, and the outrage of the walking dead has not yet balanced itself with the possibilities of cheaper labor. However, authorities had released a timely statement only yesterday stressing the illegal nature of this type of business. "People will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law" said state attorney Gill Davies."I only need to refer to the 'Universal Code of Conduct' sub section 11 '* for reference.

Police say several people were arrested in today's raid. And in an effort to assuage local fears and concern, they also stressed that contrary to local rumors the reanimates did not enter the farm via the river from the Outer Banks area, they were most probably smuggled in from out of the US.

Protest:
A small but vocal protest spearheaded by local migrant workers descended on the farm this afternoon. Former workers were angry at the farm owners who recently fired a quarter of it's workforce presumably those who's tasks could now be done by the reanimates.

     

    *The use of a reanimator for sport, entertainment, sale or financial gain is against the law.
