Slavery in the US now?

Abby Mann has done it again. She’s reported on a human rights abuse that is silently encroaching on the freedoms we seem to take for granted in this country. The culprits are the very people that we would expect to recognize the evil they are doing.

The women are told that they will not be domestics, and that they will be free to move around normally in the US. Then when they get here, they are locked in the homes, have their passports removed, and are forbidden to use the phones. If you have the stomach for it, you can watch the video here. Be prepared to be depressed at this further sign of abuse and dysfunction in the oligarchy that rules this world.

Unfortunately for me…
