5. The "hired help" in that region is treated horribly with no regard for anything about them

 

They are considered and treated as totally disposable.

Workers are brought over by their employers, usually the family, and legally cannot quit, leave or change employers without permission from their employer/sponsor, making them essentially slaves that get a meager check. They are often locked into the servants quarters when not working and beatings are a routine form of discipline. Rape and forced sexual slavery is common. There are no limits placed on how many hours they can be forced to work a day or a week.

Employers hold their passports and have total control of their immigration status. If they revoke their sponsorship the worker will be deported or jailed for an immigration violation. If a worker flees or quits they are violating their immigration status and can be fined, jail and.or deported.

Employers will return workers to employment agencies for a cash payment or "sell" the sponsorship to a new employer without the worker having any say in the matter, essentially selling people. The worker can be "sold" and forced to work for a new employer with zero ability to say no.

It is a really, really despicable system barely above pure slavery.
