A family makes their way on a sidewalk in the downtown area in Worthington, Minn., earlier this month.

WORTHINGTON, MINN. - In a basement office, across the street from the Casey's convenience store and just a block from the high school football field, a sign on the window for PSSI, a meatpacking janitorial service, announces nearly $20 an hour pay.

Inside, three women sit around a laptop and desk. One woman - who did not identify herself - stood and handed over a card with a Wisconsin area code.

"They'll answer any question you have," she told reporters. "We are not spokespeople."
