Must see video: Immigrant Slave Labor at Hershey’s Strike Back


This is a must see video about how chocolate company Hershey used debt and deportation threat to use immigrant student workers as slave labor. The students -from Eastern Europe and Asia- had to pay 3 000$ to participate in a visa program called J-1 giving them the opportunity to come in the USA to work in a factory. In the end  this program was a way to provide cheap labor in United-States. The student workers were paid about 3 to 5$ per hour. Those students unionized with the NationalGuestworkerAlliance and made a sit-in to something about it. Then have strong support from the community.
