Indentured Labour in Kalifornia

Modern indentured labour exists in North America. All done with the power of private contracts.

Of course, there are those who would say "But the drivers agreed to this! It's their own fault!"

The retort: Who has the better lawyers? Who can better afford one? Who has the politicians in their back pockets?
