Sweatshops in Orange County

On the superficial level I knew the horrors of immigrants here in the U.S. However, the appalling conditions in which so many immigrant workers survive, and are so abused, cheated and demeaned were dramatically portrayed in Sonni Efron's "Mother's Plight Turns a Home Into Sweatshop" (Nov. 27). As if the conditions weren't so horrendous as to have children stripped of their education, the fact that this family has yet to see one cent of their money truly disturbs me. I applaud Rolene Otero's department for investigating and truly hope the immigrant families are helped soon!
