Westword reports on mistreatment of Peruvian sheepherders in Colorado working in the U.S. under the H-2A section of theImmigration Reform Act. Because of the workers' status and the power of the ranchers, numerous complaints of mistreatment, physical and emotional abuse and lack of food and water have been difficult to prosecute. Investigations by the Department of Labor have not changed basic conditions for the workers, Westword reported.
