Modern-day "slave farms" in Florida

Florida's farm labor camps -- described as "modern-day slave operations" -- were the subject of a report on National Public Radio's Morning Edition yesterday.

The report includes interviews of homeless men recruited from shelters and soup kitchens. Lured by promises of work, they hop into vans, only to find themselves in fenced farm camps, forced into debt by their bosses and sometimes paid with drugs instead of money.

Listen to the report here or read a transcript here.
