New evidence of bonded labor :: BBC

In Britain. Read the entire BBC report. Here's an excerpt:
we found evidence of a new form of trafficking from eastern Europe and within Britain; evidence migrant workers were lured here by deception.

We have uncovered conditions that - taken together - amount to a form of bonded labour which is creeping back into the low paid and hidden corners of the country's otherwise booming economy.
It's worth reading the story to gain insight into how it is that some migrant workers in the UAE fall into a form of bonded labor.

I wonder whether an undercover report like the BBC's coverage of the UK labor market could occur here? The BBC's report used a TV journalist from Lithuania who posed as a job seeker.
