U.S. taxpayers are paying contractors who participate in human trafficking on U.S. military bases around the world. Thousands of poor, rural men are being held in warehouses for months without pay after promises of high salaries. These men are used to build and maintain U.S. military bases in combat zones, and they are being routinely exploited by a subcontractor system with little oversight.
Sindhu P. Kavinamannil and Sam W. McCahon are making a documentary about human labor trafficking. Recently, they sat down at POGO to record a podcast about their findings.
Check out the short teaser above, and stay tuned for the full podcast later this week.
