"Foreign workers, lured by false promises of good jobs in America, soon find themselves enslaved in plain sight as victims of labor trafficking, according to a new report published by the nonpartisan Urban Institute and Northeastern University.  About half of these workers pay "recruitment" fees to traffickers -- often thousands of dollars -- that can leave them stuck in debt for years.  And while some victims are smuggled here, a majority - or 71% - actually enter the United States with a visa, the report found." - Jeanne Sahadi, CNN, Oct. 21, 2014.
