PostSubject: Coast to Coast Resources’ offer was indentured servitude   Thu Jul 14, 2011 12:23 pm

That sweet deal soon changed when the fine print kicked in. The men’s contract required the Vietnamese laborers to pay the American company up to $7,000 to get a job in the states, according to a lawsuit. The American dream turned into a nightmare, the men said. They claim the company charged the men: -- $125 a week to live in squalor at a Pasadena apartment complex -- $75 a week for transportation to work. Viagra Sports“It was pretty terrible and to get them out of that was amazing," John Ha, the group’s attorney, said. "They sent a lot of people to threaten us," No Hai Le said.



Before the men got out, they filed a lawsuit claiming Coast to Coast Resources’ offer was indentured servitude. But that’s not all. According to the group, Coast to Coast Resources threatened the men saying any contact with outsiders would be punished by arrest and physical violence because Americans would scorn them for being from a communist country. The men worked only a few months of the 30-month term before the company fired them. The men fought back by filing that lawsuit.übersetzung Deutsch Englisch
