Making a bad situation worse

That's what they did in Iraq, and that's what they're doing on the Gulf coast. Halliburton, that is. In a region with an unemployed diaspora of hundreds of thousands of refugees spread across the US, Halliburton is hiring immigrant laborers, documented and not, through an accountability-avoidance labyrinth of subcontractors and job brokers. And then, to top it off, they're not PAYING these workers, leaving them homeless and destitute in a region already devastated.

The sordid story from Salon.

There should be a corporate death penalty, and Halliburton should be the first criminal executed.
