New York, December 5, 2007

Global Workers just learned that one worker in Guatemala refused to pay the illegal and exaggerated recruitment fees required for him to go to the US with the guest worker H-2 program. Although the recruiter had already chosen this worker to go, he was dropped off the list when he stood up for his rights. Global Workers is working in coordination with a US NGO to see what can be done for this courageous worker. The hope is that a retaliatory claim can be brought to offer some relief and, equally as important, this sparks a transnational call to end the illegal charges.
