Description

A federal law permits certain Pacific Islanders the right to work in America without visas. That law gives some employers just what they need to entice Micronesians and Marshall Islanders to move to the US to handle certain jobs that Americans just don't want to do, like change bedpans and work at McDonalds. Often the workers are told they will be learning a new trade in America, and when they sign a contract to come to the US for at least two years, they are, essentially, stuck.
