One company turns into a US labour camp

The misleading headline made me wonder where on earth the US is running the labour camp. It turns out this camp is being run in Chindu's office with wild imagination and baseless paranoia.

Did Chindu conduct investigative journalism to bring out this situation to light? It turns out those fighting for the Indian workers' rights are Americans. And what does Chindu do? It protects the Mumbai-based recruitment firm (name not mentioned) which is involved in illegal human trafficking. What are the chances it is being run by a card-carrying communist?

The Hindu : National : “Slave-like conditions in U.S. labour camp”
Over 100 Indian workers have now quit the company and are fighting for their basic rights with the help of a U.S.-based human rights organisation, the New Orleans Workers’ Centre for Racial Justice.
