This probably happens a lot more then we realize, this time the dirtbags got caught:
A millionaire who inflicted years of abuse on two Indonesian housekeepers held as virtual slaves in her Long Island mansion was sentenced Thursday to 11 years in prison.
Varsha Sabhnani, 46, was convicted with her husband in December on a 12-count federal indictment that included forced labor, conspiracy, involuntary servitude and harboring aliens.
The trial provided a glimpse into a growing U.S. problem of domestic workers exploited in slave-like conditions.
The victims testified that they were beaten with brooms and umbrellas, slashed with knives, and forced to climb stairs and take freezing showers as punishment. One victim was forced to eat dozens of chili peppers against her will, and then was forced to eat her own vomit when she couldn’t keep the peppers down, prosecutors said.

Why is it that those that do all the work, get the least amount pay and respect? I’m of course talking about much more then this sordid case, it’s true in every “employment”. Wage-slavery is slave labor, whereby the owners benefit from the labor of the workers, always for a pittance of what the workers actually produce.
Most people think this is fair, I never have. It’s injust, but it’s “capitalism”, that nirvana lifestyle that permits some to rise to the top and oppresses everyone else.
Notice the dirtbag lawyer that tries to get this woman off the hook. Disgusting. No good deed should go unpunished.
