“I was very sick for 30 days, with six stitches in my wound. I never received any help from the company, even having to pay for my own medicine from my own pocket. All the while I had to keep paying rent on the hotel room where I was staying, even though I made no money…The only thing I received from the company was belittling, humiliation, mistreatment and bad pay.”

-Leonel Hernandez-Lopez, H-2B forestry worker from Guatemala
