WBAI radio, (wbai.org),would be doing an amazing public service by exposing Slavery in present day NYC.
Many Chinese, Mexicans, Central, and South Americans are held in servitude by various gangs. They'll be held till they pay off these guys for getting them into the country.
However with the $interest$ added to the original price of admission to this "land of the free" they'll never are able to make the pay off.
In other words they're Slaves.
If they try to run away they or a family member here or in the old country is killed.
Btw 'you' see Slaves everyday here in town.
They're some of the guys selling batteries, bootleg cd's, and dvd's, and assorted crap on the streets, and subway. Many others work in sweatshops all over the city.
One of these slave pens was "discovered", 'guess the gangs didn't pay the cops enough that week. Anyway a slave enclosure was "found" in Queens two summers ago.
The news story came, and went. No newspaper or broadcast stations followed up on the other slave pens. I mean after all they're all illegals so who cares.
...wbai should care.
I've advocated doing this scary story the Boss's for years.
So far no dice.
'Mind you this operation would take Brass Balls because we'd be going up against Stone Cold Killers, and assorted corrupt cops.
Count 'me' in. There's a sweatshop around the corner from me.
(...btw, that's the WBAI sweatshirt up there. I did the art. Cool huh.)
