"Hidden Slaves: Forced Labor in the United States," released yesterday by the Human Rights Center at University of California, Berkeley, and a Washington-based nonprofit group called Free the Slaves, was based on interviews with social service providers, government officials, and labor advocates, as well as newspaper stories published between 1998-2003 that described incidents of forced labor.
