Description
 
Report on the Korean-owned Daewoosa factory in Amer. Samoa, where 251 Vietnamese “guest workers” -- more than 90% of them women -- were held for nearly two years, under conditions of indentured servitude sewing clothing for Wal-Mart, J.C. Penney, Sears, and Target. The labels read “Made in the USA” since Amer. Samoa is a U.S. territory. However, the women were not  paid the very low $2.60/hour minimum wage in Samoa. The women were beaten, sexually harassed, threatened with deportation and imprisonment, starved, forced to work 12-18 hours a day, 7 days a week when rush orders came in, and made to live in crowded rat-infested dormitories. The U.S. Dept. of Labor has assessed the Daewoosa factory a total of $604,225.
