It appears that many congresspeople are in the pockets of the very corporations that will see their profits cut if such legislation were to pass. There is no telling how completely corrupted any of these politicians are other than to look at who they seem to protect.

U.S. government contractors have made billions from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But now, several are being investigated for slave labor.

Vinnie Tuivaga, a hairdresser from Fiji, was one of the many victims who fell into the trap of modern slavery. Recruited to work in a luxury hotel in Dubai, instead she was trafficked to a military base in Iraq. She was forced to live in a shipping container, paid only a fraction of what was promised, and was unable to leave.


This is another reason to get out from having a Military Industrial War Complex running the show. And run the show it has, President Eisenhower warned us of this, but we got it anyway. Private contractors, yeah, this is just one of the many horror stories coming out about private contractors. I'm so disgusted with it all, how do they sleep at night. The Heartless Ones making money off of the poverty of others, many times off of women and children.
