Civilised Modernity...

hiding modern-day Agricultural slavery. NPR.org: "Florida lawmakers are looking into allegations that several of the state's farm labor camps are running what one U.S. attorney calls modern-day slave operations.

For the most part, the workers are U.S. citizens, and many are homeless African-American men recruited from shelters and soup kitchens. Lured by promises of work, they hop into vans, only to find themselves in fenced farm camps, forced into debt by their bosses and sometimes paid with drugs instead of money."

Listen to the report. This is twenty-first century America, for goodness sake!! Shut these places down!!
