I was thinking the same thing as I researched the Migrant Workers.

Even when the Laws are placed in front of them in the United States, it doe not help. Why? Because many of them cannot read them. Some of them are illiterate, and some of them plain and simply do not know the language it is written in. This is especially hard for the children who are taught this way of life. They do not realize that there are other options.

I am trying to get signers for this Petition to help the Migrant Workers Worldwide.

Please sign the Petition if you have not already done so, and send this link on. These people could use your help! I do not want you to have to scroll down to read the Petition.

There are extremely graphic pictures on that page, so I will put the text here. If you choose to scroll down, scroll all the way down, and gradually scroll up. You can miss seeing the photos that way.

Bless you, and....
Thank you Rose for letting me know that I could put the link on your News.

Modern slavery. Will it every be stopped? How can a 16 year old girl know about her rights? I truly believe in karma.
