Latino/a Guest Workers Exploited in the US

Mexican guest workers hired under the federal H-2B temporary worker program are claiming to be forced to work 24-hour shifts, barricaded in so they couldn’t escape and threatened with beatings to work faster by their former employer C.J.’s Seafood, a seafood processing plant in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana  and a Wal-Mart supplier.
