The next time you opt for some freshly sqeezed Floridian OJ, just remember this little CNN article: Report: Modern-day slavery alive and well in Florida (http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/South/02/25/human.trafficking.ap/index.html)

There is certainly potential for abuse, I'll grant you that. The article you provided had great shock value but NO meat and potatoes.
Besides the article has one fundamental problem. It mentions "South Florida", I can state for a FACT that in 2004 there is approximately ZERO orange groves left in South Florida! In <1980s there were but those days are gone. You have to travel to Central FL to find any serious orange groves.
I smell a rat.

Oh quit it Red, you're ruining a perfectly good thread! ;-) Hmmm... now how did I know this thread would help out your post count??? :-D
But anyway, perhaps it's not about Oranges, that was something I just kinda assumed. The article also mentions NY as another area with "forced labour" problems. Forced prostitution can be a real problem as well.
