Description

The Progressive finds that thousands of young foreigners lured to this country year after year with promises of training and cultural exchange are exploited as cheap agricultural labor and mistreated. The "traing" programs operate withthe authority of the United States Information Agency, despite documented cries of alarm overseveral years from most from withing the USIA and from the U.S. Government Accounting Office. The people who profit most from the exploitation are the private recruiters of the young visitors, who receive as much as $500 per month per trainee fromt eh famers who hire them. (February, 1995)
