Here is a Check for $0 And Also You Owe Me Rent

More from Josh Eidelson on the abuse of guest workers in this great and free country of ours. This time, he writes about Jamaicans in Florida who paid $2,000 to come to the U.S. for the opportunity to work for a company called Mr. Clean. The company provided overcrowded housing where workers slept on the floor and then charged them exorbitantly for it, presenting them with paychecks for $0 and then demanding the rent balance on top of that. The good (“good”) news: The workers went on strike and filed a Federal complaint.
