Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, July 25, 2013 1:48 AM

Who thinks the US is trying to"push" GM crops on the rest of the world? Oh yes, that was mentioned in a good many of those state department documents released by Manning. Not that anyone paying attention to the GM deals couldn't figure that out. That's what happens when we let corportations be citizens and also allow them to be Non-profit social welfare groups that's sole purpose is to promote politcal aganda that benefits their interest, and then allow them to dump unlimited sums of money corrupt the media message for elections to control our government with their own selection of representatives.

Close to Slavery: Guestworker Programs in the United States | Southern Poverty Law Center

Close to Slavery: Guestworker Programs in the United States | Southern Poverty Law Center | Society Violence Justice + | Scoop.it

"In the debate over comprehensive immigration reform, various policymakers and business groups have suggested that Congress create a new or expanded guestworker program to ensure a steady supply of foreign workers for industries that rely on an abundance of cheap labor.

 

Congress should look before it leaps. The current H-2 program, which provides temporary farmworkers and non-farm laborers for a variety of U.S. industries, is rife with labor and human rights violations committed by employers who prey on a highly vulnerable workforce. It harms the interests of U.S. workers, as well, by undercutting wages and working conditions for those who labor at the lowest rungs of the economic ladder. This program should not be expanded or used as a model for immigration reform."

Community Village Sites's comment, February 28, 2013 5:10 AM
"The H-2 guestworker system also can be viewed as a modern-day system of indentured servitude. But unlike European indentured servants of old, today’s guestworkers have no prospect of becoming U.S. citizens. When their temporary work visas expire, they must leave the United States. They are, in effect, the disposable workers of the U.S. economy."
