The global union movement is calling on the U.S. and Indian governments to take legal action against Signal International, a marine construction company, and two of its recruiters. Nearly 100 Indian workers say they were enticed to come to work at the company’s shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss., where they say they were held in modern-day slavery.

LOL at their homepage, as they blame a 3rd party company for doing thier hiring as "fraudulent":
Signal International - A Marine Fabrication Company

What a scheme companies have these days, they hire outside companies to do their staffing so they have a company to take the fall for them as a "subcontractor".
