In summary

The Little Hoover Commission calls on California to improve efforts to prosecute labor traffickers and prioritize victim services.

Cynthia Buiza is a member of the Little Hoover Commission’s subcommittee on labor trafficking, littlehoover@lhc.ca.gov.

Two women, enticed by promises of well-paid work and plentiful opportunities, left their homelands for a better life in California. A nightmare awaited them.  

Upon arrival, Angela Guanzon was told she owed $12,000 to her employer and had to work 10 years at a nursing home to repay her debt. Renuka Zellars was manipulated at a young age into indentured servitude and prevented from leaving her employer’s house even to attend school. 

Threatened and mistreated by their employers, these women had nowhere to turn.  In other cases we have studied, people were forced to work in the fields nine hours a day, six days per week, for less than $10 per hour.
