Coalition of Immokalee Workers at its best exposing oppression of migrant workers

The case started in 2002. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers had heard the stories for years. As migrant workers passed in and out of rural Collier County, coalition staff members would hear laborers talk about
migrant camps elsewhere. The owners would let them stay and work in order to pay off their debts for alcohol and drugs which were priced so high they would be in debt forever. They were effectively enslaved. This time, the coalition had heard enough and decided to fight back.
