Desperate workers on a Mexican mega-farm: ‘They treated us like slaves’

Scorpions and bedbugs. Constant hunger. No pay for months. Finally, a bold escape leads to a government raid, exposing deplorable conditions. But justice proves elusive.

Milton Friedman, intelligence agent and celebrity apologist for US imperialism, once said that those societies which put freedom (by which he means free markets) ahead of justice will garner a good deal of both, while those that put justice first will have neither. I guess he was wrong.

Isn’t capitalism wonderful!
