This is kind of old news but it's still highly important. Maddy's post about slavery reminded me about this. A lot of people don't believe slavery doesn't exist in USA or Canada anymore but here's a big example of it.
Back in 2015, the largest berry distributor in the world, had a huge scandal uncovered. Many ex workers showed the horrors for working for Driscoll berries. Many of them were working in the Canadian plant, the second largest first one being the Mexican one. Many of these field workers all said accounts of how they were raped, sexually harassed, brutal working conditions, workers were sick and injured and the heads didn't care, and the heads of the plant kept threatening them.
Driscoll was known to hire illegal immigrants or those who's Visa was about to expire. Many of these immigrants are desperate need for money and Driscoll was known to pay 50 cents a day. Many immigrants said that if they had green cards or a work visa, the company would steal their passport so they couldn't leave the country. Illegal women were forced to stay there and they were raped many times by the head workers and if they went to the police, Driscoll would inform the government and have them deported. Many ex workers also said that they threatened their lives and the family if they decided to leave them. And sadly this isn't the only company that does that. Popular media didn't do anything or cared to believe them because they were such a big company and that you "cannot trust" illegal immigrants. And it still happens TO THIS DAY. -Miranda
