Description

An employment agency in Chicago is helping recruit Mexicans to jobs in Chinese restaurants, where they are promised "housing, food, transportation and overtime." But these places more often are havens for worker abuse as the employees are locked in rooms at night and not allowed to leave after working 12-hour shifts. Using the story of Argentine Ricardo Vaisaga's abuse at Szechwan Garden in Greenwood, Ind. as a springboard, the Chicago reporter examines this issue.
