Asian Indian workers in US face human rights violation

Not one of the travel trailers from
the NOLA story except by coincidence.

One would think at some point I'd become blasé about such stories, but I certainly hope not.

The trailers probably also contain formaldehyde fumes.
A trailer house meant for just three people is shared by 24 Indian workers in the United States. This kind of accommodation has been allegedly given to over 500 Indian workers by a construction company in New Orleans over the past one year. As much as $35 a day were deducted from the salary of the workers for this style of accommodation with a little food.

I wonder if this is also one of the construction companies hiring illegal immigrants for Katrina reconstruction?

NOLA has been FUBAR in about every respect imaginable.
